The addition of the seasoning before roasting did not impart to much salt. In fact, I could have lightly sprinkled some kosher salt.
The turkey was nice and crispy. Very moist.

I want to thank each and all of you for the help.

Yea! Congrats on your success!

After cooking, helping others and offering suggestions is what we all do best. Glad it turned out great.

I am not sure I will brine my turkey again next year? I mean buy a fresh turkey.

I am not sure a fresh turkey brined, is any better than the frozen grocery store model? I always roast breast side down for 1/2 the roasting time either way.

There was no remarkable difference. But it was fun and I learned something.

ps......The grocery store turkey was 47 a LB.

IMO, a properly brined fresh turkey is a zillion times better.

Especially if it's dry brined.
