I have a question about the recipe "Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)" from Genius Recipes. Hello - I want to smoke my turkey in a big green egg at 225 after the dry brine do you think this is a good idea? I most concerned about having a moist turkey. Thanks

A dry-brine will likely do more than a wet brine to keep your turkey extra flavorful during smoking. Definitely go for it! But do keep an eye on the temperature of the breast—you want to make sure it doesn't go over 150°F or else it will be dry.
