Thanks Cali.  Ummmm, I usually buy whatever fresh turkey is on sale.  My sister is cooking next week but one of our local stores is giving free turkeys if you spend $50 - I don't ordinarily shop there but just might so I can have leftovers.

Margo,
I think they had some specials like that here too,
we are going to a friends house and bring beverages

G,
who is spoiling you today??

I remember learning about brining on this board last year
however, don't know anyone in person, who does it.

You know the chick 'a filet commercial....cows say 'eat chickin'??
I feel like that....'eat veggie pizza' lol

I used to do the Alton Brown brining and I have to say it made the juiciest, tenderest,
bird I ever made.  I'm usually a dark meat person but the white meat on this is wonderful.
These days I leave the Turkey making for my sister but I was talking her through the recipe last night.
A little late but here it is.........

By the way the Polder thermometer that sits in the bird and onto the outside of the oven really helps.

I didn't cook a turkey yesterday, my sister did, and she always overcooks her turkey :-(  I went to Trader Joe's today and bought one so I could cook it - it was actually pre-brined so I rinsed it and patted it dry, put pepper and butter on it, and basted with chicken broth during cooking.  Yum, was the gravy good - threw in a little red wine.  So we had a second Thanksgiving dinner tonight.
