To brine, or not to brine? That is the question on everyone’s minds on today’s Last Bites. After the Italian Turkey claimed victory on today’s turkey cook-off, the topic of brining your Thanksgiving turkey became more prominent than ever. What’s at stake when brining? Prior to cooking, the turkey marinates in a brining liquid to make the meat juicy and tender. In an effort to moisten the meat, some (ahem, Michael) think that the turkey’s consistency is sacrificed, becoming mushy. So, what are your other options? Michael swears by a dry rub, which thoroughly seasons the turkey while maintaining the integrity of the meat. With two delicious options, the choice is yours. Let us know which you choose so we can set the record straight on this never-ending brining debate.
