Definitely brine it. It makes a wonderful improvement to the taste. a simple bring would be 1/2c salt, 1/4c sugar, to about a gallon of water.. I just sort of eye it up. You can add other flavors to it, like peach juice or apple juice, or even a little hot sauce to tweak the flavor a little. If you have refrigerator space, put the bird in the smallest bucket that will hold it, cover with brine and let it sit for a day or two.. A big ziplock back would work too, inside a cooler with ice. (Ya just don't want to let the bird get warm during this stage). I've injected brines into the birds too when I was in a rush, with good results.
