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

3c8efe8b 201e 4bdb b436 a075cf5b4db5  2014 1030 judy bird on platter mid 036

I have a question about the recipe "Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)" from Genius Recipes. Will this work with a frozen Butterball turkey that already has a sodium solution injected in it, or will this cause it to be too salty? I know that Russ Parsons says a frozen bird works great but he doesn't address this issue of a frozen bird with an already injected sodium solution.

I wouldn't recommend doing this, as it could cause the bird to be overly salty. Perhaps try roasting it and being conservative with the amount of salt you add. Here are two great recipes:
