Brined Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
There are many recipes for brining, and many people do this each year. I personally use this every year, that is why I submitted this recipe for review by allrecipes.com. Bottom line is, if your turkey was too salty, you most likely did not rinse the bird, or did not rinse it enough. If you rinse it well after the brining you will not have the over saltiness. You also do not need to add salt in the seasonings when cooking, which also would cause the issue you mention. Try again with these things in mind. Happy Brining!

This is the second year in a row I have used this brine. I will not cook a turkey any other way after having brined one for the first time last year. I substituted a little this year depending on what I had in the pantry and fridge. The turkey does cook faster after being brined so keep an eye on your bird! Thanks for the great recipe!
