Rinse after brining

edited 11:15AM in EggHead Forum
Going to brine our turkey for the first time this year. My question is pretty simple. Do most people rinse the turkey after brining or simply dry it? Worried about it turning out too salty.

    You want to rinse it...and rinse it GOOD...never really noticed mine being overly salty, but you want to make sure to rinse out everything really well....Got my 20#r in a brine right now.[p]Wess

    rinse well and I also let it sit on a rack for an hour as it will drain quite a puddle!

    I rinse it and then rince it again to make sure its very clean. Then it dries overnight in the fridge.

  • Barry,
    Should it be covered, like with a moist towell, while in the fridge overnight tonight after it comes out of the brine? I have cooked them on our webber for years, firs on the egg and first I have brined is tomorrow. I expect the egg, Dizzt Pig and Mad Max to have made it better and easier.
