Step 1

Remove The Backbone. Using kitchen shears, cut along the backbone from the tail to the neck to remove it completely.  TIP: You can always ask your butcher to remove the backbone of the turkey to save yourself even more time!

Step 2

Dry Brine Turkey. Brining is the best way to infuse a turkey with flavor and tenderize the meat. Dry brining is much easier and less messy than wet brining. Simply mix the seasonings together and coat all sides of the turkey. Then, place it in the fridge overnight.

The next step is to simply roast the turkey and let the oven do all the work!

Step 3

Roast The Turkey. Line a large baking sheet with a wire rack, apples, and celery. Place the turkey flat, baste with garlic butter, and roast in a preheated oven at 450°F.
