    12 lb bird. Yes, very moist. I'm a big advocate of brining your bird.

    Was it a fresh or brined bird to begin with?

    So it was more of a marinade vs a brine?

    Not much. Just a hint of taste. Just right.

    @Grambler...I'm not sure I understand your question. 7 hours to me is a brine. Are there actual guidelines to what is a marinade vs what is a brine??

    I don't know if brining an already "brined bird" works??  I want to try brining and spatchcocking a fresh turkey or one that has not been previously brined.  In my area, the only time i will have access to fresh birds will be the holidays.

    Brine is salt water, marinade is everything not brine....   Just my 2 cents.  ar-cee
