We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

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.
