Searching for Thanksgiving Roast Turkey recipes. I've seen recipes that just call for salt/pepper/unsalted butter before roasting and brining turkey 24hrs before roasting. I'm wondering is it necessary to brine before the roast. The two particular recipe I'm looking at is:
What do you think? The first one is Barefoot Contessa's recipe that don't call for brining and the the second is Alton Browns recipe that call for a 24hr brine.
Thanks for all tips and info!
