1 of 9-14 pound turkey
of Cooking oil of your choice (we used Lodge seasoning spray, which is canola oil)

  • In a large stock pot combine all ingredients except ice water and simmer, stirring occasionally, until salt and sugar are completely dissolved, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and cool in refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Mix brine and ice water in a large cooler. Truss the turkey legs and place turkey in the cooler, making sure it is completely submerged. You may need to place a bowl on top of the turkey to weigh it down. 
  • Close cooler lid and brine turkey for 4-24 hours, flipping halfway through the process.
  • Remove from brine and rinse with cold water. Discard the brine. Pat the turkey dry with paper towels.
  • Adjust oven rack to lowest position. Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray inside of wok with cooking oil.
  • Place oiled cast iron trivet inside of the wok. If you don’t have a trivet, loosely fold a large piece of aluminum foil into a 6-inch square, about 1-inch thick, and place it in the bottom of the wok. 
  • Place turkey in the wok, breast side up. Spray turkey with cooking oil and roast for 30 minutes.
  • Cover bird with foil and lower oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit, about 2-4 hours depending on the size of the bird.
  • Let turkey rest, covered loosely in foil, for 15-30 minutes before carving.
