Dry Brine Turkey


Dry Brine Turkey

I love, love, love this turkey recipe because it’s packed with flavor (yes, there’s an orange in it), it requires 0 prep on the day of celebration (which means I get to relax more that day), and it has the crispiest skin and yet is so moist on the inside.  Yes!

I’ve been using this recipe for over 3 years now and wanted to share.  Do know that it’s best to start it (brine it) at least 12 hours in advance of when you will cook it.  Ideally you want to brine it for more than 12 hours (which involves seasoning it and letting it sit in your fridge) but you can do 12 hours if that’s what you got.  

Ready to learn more, let’s go!


  • 1 Jar – (something to put it in with a good seal if you’re making the brine ahead of putting it on the turkey).  I like to do that so I’m not leaving all the work to one day.
  • Small whisk to mix ingredients
  • Bowl to mix
  • roaster for turkey
  • and of course a turkey
