So I have a confession. I've never cooked a turkey before. Our thanksgiving is coming up and though we usually go to my parent's house I've decoded to do the whole turkey shing dig at our place this year. We have new appliances and it's well past the time I've learned to conquer this meal myself. I've done the research and have experience with enough poultry and vegetables to give me the confidence to go into the kitchen guns blazing (or baster blazing?). I'm going to try the America's Test Kitchen method of brining since I'm a food science nerd plus it just sounds fun.
Writing it down here makes it real. So stay tuned because I'll be blogging about my attempts with one of the most important meals of the year. There may be a few surprises!
