Turkey Week: How to Prepare and Brine a Thanksgiving Turkey [VIDEO]

Welcome to Turkey Week at the Art of Manliness!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought it would be helpful to create a series of video tutorials on how to prepare, cook, and carve the perfect Thanksgiving turkey. With that in mind, I’ve teamed up with my friend Karl Engel, head chef of the award-winning BBQ team Pigcasso here in Tulsa, OK, to show you everything you need to know to cook a Thanksgiving turkey that will wow all your guests. Every day for the next six days, we’ll be publishing a video with a different tip.

In today’s video, Karl shows us how to prepare and brine a Thanksgiving turkey with his specialty dry brine. You can download a PDF of the dry brine recipe here.

Be sure to check in tomorrow for how to oven roast a Thanksgiving turkey to perfection.
