Ingredients
  • Brine
  • 10 pounds turkey
  • 1 1/2 gallons very cold water
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • Marinade
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon essence
  • Essence
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
Directions
In container, large enough to hold turkey and liquid, combine water, salt and sugar until dissolved. Place turkey in brining (liquid should cover completely) and marinate overnight; refrigerate. Preheat oven to 475°. In a small bowl, whisk together corn syrup, maple syrup, butter and essence. Remove turkey from brine and pat dry with paper towels. Place turkey on a rack, breast side down, and baste with butter mixture. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce temperature to 300°. Continue baking for another 45 minutes, breast side down, basting every 30 minutes. Turn turkey over and continue to cook 1 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature in the deepest part of the turkey reads 155°. Let rest before carving.
