Aii's Turkey

Christmas was fun, I made a pile of sides, but Ali's turkey was superb! Done in a crockpot, it beats the heck out of this fad about frying turkeys.

Bone in breast
Add one cup of salt and one cup of brown sugar to a boil in one gallon of water.  Cool completely, and add 8 cups ice.  Add rinsed bird to icy brine, refridge for eight hours.  Rinse bird, store overnight in fridge to dry out.
Put in large crock, add cut up onions, carrots, celery.  Season bird with Italian seasoning.  Add two cups of liquid (white wine or broth) 
Put 1/2 stick of butter on top of bird.  Cook on low for 7ish hours.
