If you want great flavour and don't have time to brine and fresh herb butter is too labour intensive, then a simple dry rub will help you out to make your turkey taste better. It's ready in minutes, has great flavour and easy to customize with your favourite spices. A turkey can never be too flavourful, so feel free to use the dry rub with brine or herb butter preparations.

If you don't have the dried herbs, replace with 5 teaspoons Italian seasoning
