Turkey hops..... Strisselspalt? I've heard they are floral and lemony and can have some current/dark fruit....could work with turkey.....but I am still wary.

I agree. What if the hops made the drippings, and as a result, the gravy, bitter. If i was served bitter gravy I would be highly dissappointed.

No. I do brine my turkeys in a vegetable/herb brine. Take veggies of your choice along with herbs of your choice and reduce them in boiling water. Strain and add salt for brine. It's nice.

Absolutely!

Brine is essential. While we are at it, a digital thermometer is absolutely essential OR YOU WILL OVERCOOK THE BIRD.

To the people who cook a bird for a certain amount of time, or until a little plastic (worst invention ever) pops out: enjoy your dried out bird.
