Hi Nancy - my family makes the Judy Bird (https://food52.com/recipes/15069-russ-parsons-dry-brined-turkey-a-k-a-the-judy-bird) every year, which calls for 1 tablespoon of salt—we use Diamond Crystal kosher—for every 5 pounds the turkey weighs (so you could use a scant 5 tablespoons), we've done that for up to 3 days in advance and the turkey has never been too salty!
