How to Brine a Thanksgiving Turkey

  • Anne’s favorite way to brine a Thanksgiving turkey is to dry brine the bird 3 days before Thanksgiving and store it open in the fridge. Use Red Stick Spice Company Dry Brine. Shop Dry Brine Blend here.
  • If you want to learn more about other brining methods, listen to our recent Smidgen episode, Brine Time Anytime.
  • Red Stick Spice also offers a Turkey Brine Kit. Shop here.
