Is it possible to dry brine a pre-basted turkey?

miauil123 | Nov 25, 201909:58 PM     5

Hi all! I got an 11-12ish young frozen turkey that has already been pre-basted but wanna go a dry brine route since I hear it is a great way to season without all the wasted liquid (wanna go hassle-free with this thanksgiving). It's a turkey that contains 9.5% turkey broth, salt, sugar (and if it helps nutrition facts say 200mg sodium per serving). The recipe for the dry brine contains a couple of spices, sugar, and about 1/4 cup of salt. Do you guys think it's possible to dry brine without the turkey getting salty? Any suggestions/advice?
