Haven't looked at the link yet but I like snakes.

Going to bed without supper tonight other than a handful of raisins.
That's really cheap eaten.

I don't know about anyone else's local HEB, but ours has Riverside turkeys on sale for .39 cents a pound. We bought the limit of 2 today, and will buy a couple more tomorrow. They also have Del Monte canned corn, green beans, and sweet peas 10 for $5. For a family of 6 - you need to jump on those deals.

It has taken a year for me to get it through my head that my family of 2 has turned into a family of 6 and sometimes more. Worth has reassured me that me posting about feeding a large family here is okay - actually, he has worded it nicer than that. For that I appreciate it very much.

We are going to use the thanksgiving specials to stock up on food - that's the logical thing that all of my family agrees on. Do I like canned vegetables? No, but we're trying to feed 6, and money spent needs to be used as wisely as possible. That's Cheap Eaten family style.

I wish I could still grow a garden.

39 cents/lb is an amazing deal on turkey! Sounds like the good old days. Best we can do here is get one free if you spend $150 or 49 cents/lb if you spend $50. Guess that last one isn't too bad if I need lots of stuff.

I got ours last week for
.27 lb. I was planning on brining it and then cooking on the Green Egg but read somewhere not to brine a bird that was basted prior to packaging. Any truth to that, does anyone one know? Cheap eating nonetheless 😊

Read the packaging. If it already has sodium in it, brining could make it too salty.

A turkey with a light cure is to die for.

Saw turkeys on for $1.49 lb here (CAD) and that is pretty cheap eaten but I wasn't tempted enough. We probably get down to a buck at best here, your prices are pretty amazing.
I will dry brine again whenever I get a turkey. So easy, and definitely best in the taste and tenderness department. At least, I can't do better. You can even brine and thaw simultaneously and that makes it easier than I could almost imagine.

I had bought the ingredients last nite / was intrigued by a citrus / spice brine so decided I’d try. I’ll check the turkey packaging to see if it has already had salt added and if so will lighten the brine to compensate.

For many years, we have been buying Riverside brand turkeys. They do very well in a brine. It's been so long since we bought any other brand that I don't remember what they were like brined. I wish I could be of more help.

I tell myself every year I am not going to cook a turkey.
Well guess what????
I bought a darn turkey for thanksgiving.
A small 10 pounder.
Who could resist for under 10 dollars.

I found this today, the theory seems right.

Isn't dry brine = just salt?
