Poultry Brine

This brine works with the added power of pickling spices which increases the moisture in poultry with some great seasonings for more flavor.

1 gallon water
1 cup salt (1 1/2 cups Kosher or coarse salt)
1/2 cup white vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon pickling spice
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon tarragon

Dissolve salt and brown sugar in water in a large pot. Bring to a boil. Allow to cool. Add vinegar and spices. Brine for 1 hour per pound.
