Is a Butterball turkey brined?

Is it better to go with one, or get a regular bird and brine it yourself?

I don't think it's brined, but injected. Dunno if brining one would hurt the pre-processing or not.

If you want to brine one, I'd suggest not getting one that is injected.

If the label says something like "packed in X% solution" then its like a brine.

I think if the number "X" is greater than 7 or something, then it counts as a brine.

Think it might be in KC's Turkey thread in Roadmap somewhere
