A question about a recipe: Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)

I have a question about the recipe "Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)" from Genius Recipes. I have a recipe that calls for a butter rub, mixed with pancetta and herbs just before roasting; no brining. Is there any issue if I put butter rub under the skin and salt the outside three days in advance?

that's the right answer. you can add the butter just before roasting, though. sounds good, inf act. by the way, one year i tried basting half of the turkey with butter and not basting the other half at all and found only a very slight difference in browning. think spf 30 v. spf 35.
