here's margaret's pumpkin pecan pie. i made the crust.

brined the turkey with alton brown's recipe for about 16 hours. we're lucky the bucket fit in our fridge. couldn't find kosher salt in 3 groceries, so used 1/4 less of the regular kind.

my first turkey. apparently alton brown knows what to do with a bird.
