Responding to the previous answer, yes letting the skin dry out is beneficial. I've seen many recipes that actually call for that. Doing so leads to a crisper skin when the turkey is roasted.

Breath. Take a look at altonbrown.com. Refer to his recipe for "the turkey I'll cook this year." I've prepared it. He lets it dry in the fridge for several days & the skin is more crispy. The drying has no effect on the meat.
