    duonyte's Note:

    I've been reading about dry brining of turkey, which is more convenient as you don't have to deal with a large tub of liquid sloshing about. This recipe is from chef Lee Ann Whippen of Chicago q restaurant. I calculated the formula for a 10 lb bird. Just put the number of pounds of your bird into the servings box to recalculate the right amount of ingredients.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine all the ingredients, except the butter.
    2. 2
      Coat the bird and place it in a releasable bag. Store in the refrigerator for two days.
    3. 3
      Remove the turkey from the bag, and place it back in the refrigerator, uncovered, for one more day.
    4. 4
      Carefully loosen the skin from the breast without tearing the skin.
    5. 5
      Smear the softened butter under the breast skin. Roast breast side up. Several articles I read suggested the turkey should not be stuffed, and to watch the gravy - the juices will be saltier than usual, so use low sodium broth to augment the juices for gravy.
