Default Maple syrup brined turkey

And in any smoker or smoke box - maple wood, another classic delight.

For the brine:

1 10- to 12-pound turkey, thawed if frozen
5 quarts hot water
1-1/2 cups kosher salt (if using table salt, cut the amount down to 3/4 cup)
3/4 cup bourbon
1 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 onion, peeled and quartered through the root end
3 to 4 strips of orange peel
3 bay leaves, broken into pieces
2 tablespoons black peppercorns
1 tablespoon whole cloves
3 quarts ice
1 cup butter, melted
Traeger Pork/Poultry Shake, or salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Sprigs of fresh sage and thyme for garnish
Orange wedges, lady apples, or kumquats for garnish

And in any smoker or smoke box - maple wood, another classic delight.
