Football of course!
I first learned of brining a turkey through Cooks Illustrated magazine, years ago. It is my magazine of choice simply because there is no advertising, simply pages and pages of illustrations, recipes and reasoning. These are the same folks who run America's Test Kitchen.
They take basic recipes and analyze them run them through a series of tests and processes to simplify the methods with the ultimate goal of rendering the dish with the best possible results.
