Speaking with an old timer about turkey hunting over a fresh pull of corn liquor, he tells the story of a place called Gobbler Hollow. A hidden honey-hole nestled in the Northern Appalachian foothills of Western Pennsylvania. “WE HAD TOMS WITH BEARDS LIKE AXEMEN AND SPURS THAT COULD TAME THE WILDEST STALLIONS IN TEXAS.” Named in its honor, Gobbler Hollow Bird Brine incorporates our time-tested recipe to bring forth unforgettable flavor and unmatched tenderness. With the quality you’ve come to expect from Tacticalories, Gobbler Hollow will forever set the standard for the best bird you’ve eaten.

BRINING INSTRUCTIONS

Now, if the thought of "brining" a turkey is intimidating to you, forget it. It's easy breezy... we do all the hard work.

THANKSGIVING TURKEY: Mix entire brine mix bag into 1 gallon of ice water and 1 gallon of cold apple cider (apple juice is an acceptable replacement). Mix well (3-5 minutes). Place brine bag inside of clean 5 gallon bucket for stability. Place fully thawed bird in bag, breasts side down. Slowly pour brine/liquid mix over bird to fully cover. Allow the bird to soak for at least 12 hours in brine, but no less than 1 hour per lb. Prior to cooking, wash off brine, pat dry. Rub with Tacticalories seasoning and smoke, bake, fry or grill. The meat will be so moist and juicy, you’ll be gobblin' up a storm!

CHICKEN: Mix 1 LEVEL CUP of brine mix bag into 1/2 gallon of ice water and 1/2 gallon of cold apple cider. Mix well. Place brine bag inside of clean 5 gallon bucket for stability. Place fully thawed bird in bag, breasts side down. Slowly pour brine/liquid mix over bird to fully cover. Allow the bird to soak for at least 12 hours in brine, but no less than 1 hour per lb. Prior to cooking, wash off brine, pat dry. Rub with Tacticalories seasoning and smoke, bake, fry or grill. 

FOR BEST RESULTS: Bring water and cider to boil, add brine mix and mix well for super saturation. Allow brine/liquid mix to cool completely in refrigerator before pouring over bird. 

TO USE AS DRY BRINE - Dry bird breasts or thighs and apply a thick covering of the dry brine mix. Allow to rest in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Wipe or wash off access brine and rub with Tacticalories seasoning and smoke, bake, fry or grill.

After The Brine; How to Cook Your Turkey

  • Lace up your polished White New Balances... 
  • Preheat your smoker or oven to 325°.
  • If you've brined your turkey overnight with GOBBLER HOLLOW, make sure you wash the mixture off and dry the bird completely.
  • Apply a light coating of olive oil to the skin and rub with your Tacticalories seasoning of choice.
  • PRO-TIP: Apply a light coating of Tacticalories Bad Hombre Taco sauce, RED HOT or similar sauce to add a unique spicy element to the flavor.
  • Place bird on baking rack or grill grates, breast side up.
  • Secure favorite adult beverage, consume responsibly-ish.
  • PRO-TIP: If the turkey breasts/wings are blackening, cover them with aluminum foil. Check 2/3 of the way through your cook.
  • Cook until the thickest portion of breast meat reaches 165° and thigh meat reaches 180° - this is typically around 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  • Allow to rest for 15 minutes, slice, and be ready to sign autographs, Chef.

    Delicious

    I bought 2 of these kits to try. I fried a turkey for thanksgiving with the Cajun seasoning. I thought I overcooked it due to the color but it’s just the way the Cajun seasoning turns out. The bird was juicy and the guests loved it. I am going to use my second kit for Christmas it will be the habanero flavor. I’m sure it will turn out great but I am going to smoke this one.

    My Friends & Family Didn't Believe I Cooked It

    Your first thanksgiving turkey can be an overwhelming task to take on... but I was ready... thanks to Tacticalories! The kit was so easy to use and follow and I brined my first bird with the delicious seasoning packet. The video instructions could not have been any easier to follow. I also cooked my turkey in sections and sous vide cooked them in duck fat with fresh poultry seasonings... it was hands down the most succulent tasty meat I've ever cooked. The family raved about it and I've been volunteered to cook the turkey for now on in years to come!
