I'm planning to brine the thing in the Williams-Sonoma brine and my oven has a meat thermometer that will do most of the work for me, but I don't know what bird to buy. Do I order one from the butcher shop? organic free range is $3.89 per pound. We're not strictly organic people, but I do want the best tasting. Can I just order one from Kroger? It's a whole lot closer, but I'm willing to make the drive and pay the extra (actually, I have no idea what one costs at the grocery) if it'll make that much difference. If I do order from the grocery, when do I need to do it? Or can a decent bird be acquired without ordering? Thank you.
