Thanksgiving is right around the corner which means it’s time to talk turkey! Whether you’re hosting a small family gathering or a “Friendsgiving Feast,” the turkey is traditionally the centerpiece of the meal. So how do you get a perfectly cooked, delicious bird without drying out the meat? The key to baking the perfect Thanksgiving turkey is to not overcook it. In addition, brining your turkey in a saltwater brine will produce delicious, tender, juicy meat. We found this amazing Buttermilk-Brined Turkey recipe from Williams Sonoma that we think you’ll love.

Buttermilk-Brined Turkey Recipe

This easy brine recipe uses simple ingredients that you’ll be able to find at most supermarkets. Make room in your refrigerator and be sure to pick up large brining bags as you’ll be soaking your turkey in the brine for 24-36 hours before baking. Also, don’t forget to pick up a meat thermometer if you don’t already have one. Making sure to not overcook your turkey is key, so you’ll want to start checking the temperature after about 2 hours in the oven. With this easy recipe and close attention, you’ll have one of the most moist, delicious turkeys you’ve ever had!
