I'm buying a fresh turkey this year. I plan on brining on Wednesday and frying. How early can I buy my turkey? I'd ideally like to avoid the Wednesday crush, but I'm worried that if I buy it too early (Monday or Tuesday) it will be full syrupy pink juice by Wednesday.
If it makes any difference, it's not a 'specialty' turkey, it will likely be a Huntinsinger Ranch or Foster Farms.
