I've always wanted to try that.
We always brine with Alton Brown's recipe, and everyone loves our turkey, but it is a lot of work, and like a PP said, if you have a turkey that is already brined it would taste way too salty. OP, if I were you I would go to Walmart and buy a cheap meat thermometer. We never go by the button b/c they are unreliable, and you can end up with either an undercooked or overcooked turkey. DH is always the one to cook it, and it always turns out perfectly, so I can ask him how exactly how he cooks it if you want me to.
