I dry-brined my nice chicken overnight but...

I didn't wash it before I salted it (it's in the refrigerator, half-covered right now) plan was to rinse off the salt tomorrow, before roasting it. Is this bad? Should I have rinsed off the bird, then salted it?

My other question is: if you dry-brine, do you need to rinse the bird and then salt again before roasting?

The bird is from WF Bell and Evans..

Thank you!


First time dry-briner
