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?

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.)

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

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.

idk, I don't travel.

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