How to Roast a Turkey

The first step in roasting the perfect turkey is the quality of the turkey you buy.  Check with your local butcher to see if heritage turkeys are available.  If not, a grocery store bird will do, but we think brining is an essential step in creating a moist bird.  Turkey dries out easily and can be bland, so brining for 24-30 hours will ensure a moist flavorful bird to be the centerpiece of your table.
