When you (or your family) roast poultry, do you brine the bird first?

When making hotel and airline reservations, are you more likely to make the non-refundable reservation or the refundable reservation?

Does cracking knuckles cause arthritis or other problems? make for knobby knuckles?

No

Non-refundable, i.e. the cheapest option

No. (This articles outlines a study about it which I found interesting)

No. I discovered those Cajun Injectors and it changed my life.

Non-refundable, because we don't usually book way ahead and almost always use Hotwire or something like it.

I don't think so? But what do I know. I crack my knuckles and have arthritis in my back. I doubt they're related.

When I have time. Sometimes on weekdays, I don't marinate it ahead, I just put it in a foil packet with liquid (oil, possibly vinegar, and other seasonings) and put it in the oven.)

Honestly, I have no idea.

No.

We have been brining our turkey for three years now and it's so delicious. We use Alton Brown's recipe:

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/good-eats-roast-turkey-recipe/index.html

It depends. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

Apparently not, I don't do it, so I've never cared.

no and I'd never heard of anyone doing that until last week.

non-refundable because it's cheaper and I rarely go/stay anywhere so.. i am only making the reservation when I'm sure.

I doubt it.

Yeah, we brine it overnight. This makes the turkey really moist!

N/A I don't travel

No. It's just popping gas bubbles.

We don't brine...I once brine a turkey on my own and it turned into a salt block. So I stay away from brine.

I tend to make non-refundable since if I am going I am going and nothing stopping me.

I don't think so...

I rub the turkey with salt and let it sit overnight. The height and size of my fridge (awkward and small) make storing a turkey-sized pan of water in it a pain in the butt.

Non-refundable. So far it hasn't bitten me in the ass...

I crack my knuckles all the time and they aren't knobby. My husband does too, but his are quite knobby. I figure it's genetics, not the cracking.

No.

idk, I don't travel.

I have no idea, it just makes me want to murder the person cracking their knuckles.
