Brined Turkey from Trader Joe's?

sheilajoyce_gw

DD prepared her first turkey from scratch and took her friends' advice and bought the brined turkey from Trader Joe's. She followed directions but was so disappointed. It had no drippings in the bottom of the pan, so no drippings for making tasty gravy. It was also dry. She says next time she will follow my advice and buy a fresh turkey. Has anyone else been disappointed by the TJ brined turkey?
