Two Turkey Questions

Scampi | Nov 10, 2006 06:10 PM

We are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time in many years. I have a couple of questions concerning the turkey. First, I have never brined a turkey, but have read here that it definitely improves it. Can I brine a frozen turkey, say a Butterball? Do I thaw it first?

Also, do you have any tips or tricks for getting that nice even brown color on the turkey? TIA for any advice.
