Default Rest after brine?

I will be roasting my brined bird in the oven, do I still need to let it rest for a while before putting it in there? Or will the skin be ok if I remove it from the brine rinse and in the oven,since it is being cooked at a higher temp, than a smoker?

I usually go from brine to cooker without resting. The high temps should crisp it up alright.

Thanks, I was starting to worry that my cooking schedule was going to be messed up. I am at peace once more.

Probably too late for today's cook, but for what it's worth: I brined, rinsed, patted it dry and let it sit on the counter for about 15 minutes. Then it went into the smoker. It turned out great.

I always like to pull mine from the brine the night before the cook and let it sit in the fridge overnight to rest. I always cook my turkeys at at least 325, but usually closer to 400 and still like to rest them to dehydrate the skin.

I pull from brine and let sit 1-2 hrs at room temp after washing and drying. Gives brine a chance to even out and time to warm a little be for hitting smoker. Takes less time to get back to temp.

Well, I have to say thanks to everyone for their help. This was the best turkey I have made to date. Now I will confess I didn't smoke it, but I did brine it. And when it was done, I couldn't get the juice to stop ozzing out of the bird. I let it rest on the counter in a foil tent for about 30-45 min. and I had to empty my turkey carving board 3 times. Even after I cut it up there was still alot of juice in it. I will never do another turkey with out brining. Sorry no pic's but I was to busy cutting and plating to get the camera.
