Salt Cured Turkey (Dry-Brined) - Day 2

Everyone loves a good massage, even your Thanksgiving turkey, although unlike myself the turkey likes a gentle massage.  That is all that needs to be done to your bird on the second day.  

Remove the turkey from the refrigerator, pan, bag and all, and gently massage the bird for a 2 or three minutes (through the bag).  You may notice that there is no longer any obvious salt. Don't worry this is a good thing.  Also you may also notice that the salt has started to draw out some of the liquid from the meat. Don't panic it will be reabsorbed.  Just give your bird a gentle massage and put it back in the refrigerator.  Don't think about it for another 24 hours or so.

Easy peasy!  Day two is complete.  Now go relax you worked hard all day.
