Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Turkey brine - or not

Saw a frozen butterball today at publix. Said it was in a solution of 8% water and less than 2% salt. If that is all I had to evaluate, would you recommend brining that bird? Or is the 2% salt enough already? Thanks.

    Butterball also sells unbrined all-natural turkeys.  I have two right now (well, 1 and leftovers) and I brined the one I cooked.  I was thorough in reading the fine print.
