What do you mean by "ice water?"

Great question. We just mean chilled water with a few cubes of ice in it.

The purpose of including ice water in the last step of brining is to make sure the brine solution doesn't start prematurely cooking the bird. Adding cold water with a few cubes of ice just keeps everything cool until your fridge or cooler does the rest of the work.
