“To brine or not to brine?” Now, I am a fan of brining and have had some great success with both wet and dry brining. But truth be told, I’m not always as planned and thoughtful as required, to get an early jump on brining the bird.So, option number 3 (for me), is to dry rub the bird and put it in the fridge uncovered (on a rack, over a sheet pan) for about an hour. From the fridge, it goes straight into the convection oven at 390°F for 20 minutes to really dry the skin.

Some years I like to do something interesting and different with the turkey, and some years I like to keep it classic - and when I'm feeling the latter, this is the recipe I turn to. The aroma of citrus, fresh herbs, and herbes de Provence give this turkey tons of that traditional, beautiful flavor.Stuffing the cavity of the bird with citrus, onion and fresh herbs perfumes the entire bird and keeps it super juicy. Overall, this is a classic recipe you can't go wrong with for Thanksgiving.
