#57 Roast a heritage turkey (and brine it!)
The best turkey I ever had was at a friend's house in Vermont. I messaged him to ask how he made it and he sent me to the Alton Brown recipe here. We got our turkey from the Northern Lights Christmas Tree Farm where my brother got married. It was about a 12 pound bird.
I made the brine on Sunday, and put the turkey in the brine Wednesday night around 10 am. I didn't rotate because it was sitting vertically in a 5 gallon bucket! It turned out really well, there are a few things I'd do differently in the future.
Crossing things off my list left and right!
