The turkey is the star of a classic Thanksgiving table. And, like a real-life celebrity, turkey can be fussy, difficult, and a general drama queen. But when it's good, it's really good. From the fight for the drumsticks to the final snap of the wishbone, Turkey Day just isn't complete without...well...its namesake.

So the pressure is on. How to be the hero of your Thankgiving? It's called The Dry Brine, and while it may sound like a 50's-era dance move, it's actually the secret to a juicy, crisp-skinned turkey, every time.

So what are you waiting for? Get your dry brine on.
