    So, summary is that property turkey gravy is too salty from a brined bird? Anyone disagree?
    I've had the gravy go both ways with brined turkey... usually I find it to be nicely seasoned, but on a couple occasions it was too salty - nothing that a roux and unsalted chicken broth couldn't fix though.

    It depends on the brining solution. If they heavily salt it, the gravy will definitely be to salty. Our drippings based gravy is always good.

    The only drawback to brining, is that proper sausage stuffing doesn't cook all the way through, because it's not in the oven long enough.

    I’ve seen people season the gravy with a brined turkey which I think is the mistake. You don’t need to add more salt and spices to it, just the juice is fine.

    Also one other mistake people do is use the wrong kind of salt for the brine. Table salt should never be used

    I brine my turkeys and then cook them on the BBQ. Best I've ever had, drippings are perfect for gravy base without any extra seasoning. I do a quick brown on the neck and giblets and let them stew in the drippings pan as well.

    Because a 20 lbs turkey fully cooks in 2 hours, and the normally dry as hell white meat is delisciously moist.
    Wait, I missed this. How does brining the turkey change how fast it cooks?

    The moisture content helps it cook faster. My first brined turkey was VERY over cooked because I refused to believe it was done in 2 hours, and let it keep cooking for another 1/2 hour. Big mistake.

    Obviously tastes best if a YETI bucket is used.

    Dry salting turkey is easiest.

    I find I don’t get a lot of drippings from a brined bird as the moisture stays inside.

    Turkey kinda sucks. I'm pretty sure its only popular because it can feed a mass of people cheaply. Otherwise it's a bland featureless protein.
    Frozen turkeys are guaranteed to be awful. I always buy fresh ones. At least twice as expensive versus frozen.

    There are heritage turkeys available that have great flavour. These are quite pricey but excellent.

    Generally speaking, thats kind of normal car culture. It's the entire point of racing after all.
