For the juiciest turkey on the block, brining the bird with salt results in a plump, moist, and flavorful turkey every time. But is a wet brine or a dry turkey brine better? I tested both, and these are my recipes and results.
I discovered the genius of turkey brining several moons ago, and now, I can’t make a Thanksgiving turkey with one.
Whether to brine my turkey or not isn’t the question. It’s which method to go with: A wet brine soak in a salt water solution or a dry brine rubbed into and under the skin?
Brine me baby! And talk turkey to me.
