Where do you guys stand on rinsing / washing your turkey before dry brining?

Of course, people are worried about spreading bacteria. But the judy bird recipe still includes the washing step.

I don't want to skip it if it will impact the flavor.

Julianna114—I just used a similar method on capons not two weekends ago, and I did not wash the bird; it didn't affect flavor at all! I did pat the whole thing dry, though.
