I brined turkey for the first time last year.  It was o.k., but I didn't
enjoy it enough to put the extra effort in on a regular basis.

I usually take the lazy cook's way out and a) buy a pre-basted turkey then
b) shove it into a cooking bag until the last 30 minutes then take it out
for browning.  I've gotten consistently happy results with that formula, so
think I'm gonna stick with it for the most part.  (Of course, I also <GASP!>
stuff the bird, but I do the stuffing ahead and make sure it's cool before
stuffing the bird for safety's sake and guess I just grew up wrong 'cause I
prefer it that way.)
