My mother heard about my reminder on brining your turkey. My father tells me she dismissed that idea. That’s what’s so fun about blogging, your friends and family are keeping up with you so they can disagree with you remotely. I will say that the food came out with no problems, but 12 hours of effort went into the one meal. Never think it’s easy, but it is worth it. Especially when you feed it to work friends who will go back and brag about your crispy BRINED turkey.
