I'm dry-brining the bird, but it wasn't defrosted on the inside when I rubbed salt on the outside. Do I dry it off and reapply?

Soooo let's say I dried off the bird. Is it going to be too dry now? (If you can't tell, I'm a turkey virigin.) And if it is, is there any way to remedy this?

No need to, according to Russ Parsons of the LA Times. He's done a lot of testing of dry brining and finds it works well with birds that are still defrosting.
