  • Summary

    Dry-brining a turkey ensures a moist and seasoned bird that also takes up less space in the refrigerator than a wet-brined one. Don't dry-brine a kosher (previously salted) turkey; the result will be too salty.

    Ingredients

    • 1 14-pound turkey, neck and heart reserved for Easy Turkey Stock
    • 1/3 cup coarse salt
    • 2 tablespoons coarsely cracked black peppercorns
    • Simple Turkey Gravy (optional)
