First time making turkey - to brine or not to brine?

Hey Guys,

This my first time doing the turkey for Thanksgiving and I was just wondering if you think I should brine it for my first time. Although it seems good in their, I'm horrified at the prospect of mushy salty meat. Also, any advice on good recipes would be helpful. I was planning on doing either Aloton's or Emeril's at this point. Thanks.
