Turkey...Blown Dry

My husband and I rinsed our 19-pound turkey well in cold water and, after patting dry with paper towels, the bird still felt too damp. We grabbed a blow dryer my step-daughter had left in her room and went at it. Beautiful!

Why does the bird have to be dry? Wouldn't the heat from the oven dry it??

The real question is why did OP rinse the bird in the sink at all? That's a major cross-contamination risk.

I guess, if you are eating out of the sink. . .

I am a bit lost as to the hair dryer thing myself. . . that is a type of food styling I guess I am just not aware of. What kind of style does a turkey require?
