Well the darn bird wasn't thawed out enough Friday night to get it into a brine and our supper was Saturday night. So, maybe I'll try the brine next time.
On a side note, I ended up cooking the bird upside down!!!...After about 1hour of resting, I started to cut in and found there to be very little meat...Was I mad. Anyway, after complaining about getting a bad bird for a few minutes, I noticed that there was more meat underneath....When I flipped it over walla!!!...Breasts!...hehe. Only problem with this was there wasn't a nice brown crispy skin over the breast which I like. But all was well and it was a nice meal. Mom must have been laughing it up inside...
Anyway, thanks for all the suggestions and advice. It WILL come in handy next time.
(Note to self: a 16lb Turkey takes at least 4 days in the fridge to un-thaw)
Happy Thanksgiving Canada!!
