Happy Thanksgiving
The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fail.

What are you cooking Joe? I am at the in laws so no cooking for me. I know they are doing 2 birds. One roasted, one deep fried.

I want to hear about that dry brined turkey. I soaked mine overnight in water with kosher salt, peppercorns, bay leaves and a little All Spice. First time using a gas convection oven...over cooked. :(

Flavor was good, though.

I always used a wet brine, this time I tried a dry brine & came very good.

One of the best things I ever learned about ccoking was dry brining. Simply salting meat the day before (man what that does for a rib eye) was a revelation. One of the top 5 or 6 things that really improved my cooking. Never tried it with turkey though. Still in love with wet brines for birds.

While it came good, I prefer the wet one.

If I'm cooking the Bird, its deep fried.  Injection is different every year.  Creole Butter, Apple Juice and Cinnamon,  Garlic Butter, Strained Italian Dressing, Raspberry Vinaigrette.  So many different flavor Combinations.  Love Caramelized Brussel Sprouts with Bacon.  Never a Dry or over cooked bird with a Deep Fryer.   Just Sayin

Frying a turkey works best when you put the bird in frozen. It just explodes with flavor.
