    No biggie! I've never brined it but if Cat says....Brine the dern thing. Prep it the way you would a chicken put it on the turkey sitter...pop the polder in the breast/leg set the internal temp to 185* dome temp at 300*-325* and wait for the alarm to go off! The first bird I did was last year and I was as skittish as you. When the big turkey (17LB) came out of the Egg (don't remember the exact time but we cooked 20 - 25 min per lb as I remember)It came to RAVE reviews! My son in law Jim who hates turkey 'cause his mom used to cook them till they were as dry as cardboard had three helpings. My one word of caution, when you go to carve Mr. Tom be sure you have a deep plate or platter under him because you want to save the juices that will pour out for your gravy.
    My eggsperience with MR. Egg is that within a wide set of rules you can't really mess anything up! Cook to internal temp and when you can move the leg witrh ease EAT!
    Good luck and have fun.
