I dry brine all my poultry prior to cooking so this goes into the fridge for 4hrs-24 hrs. Nothing covering the bird.

This bird is ready for the fridge to dry cure prior to cooking.
When you dry brine, do you use a rub with salt ?

What are you using for seasoning ?

I would like to dry brine but all my fav rubs contain salt.
