Turkey - after brine, in fridge uncovered?

twiggles Nov 25, 2009 03:27 PM

My turkey is currently brining. It's coming out of the brine around midnight and going into the oven at noon tomorrow. Does it make sense to rinse the bird and leave it in the fridge uncovered so the skin dries out a little?

Thanks in advance.

    Yes, less moisture on the skin is a good thing when roasting.

      This has my yes too. Air drying helps the skin get nice and crisp IMO.
