      Best. Turkey. Ever! We used a fresh, not frozen turkey and we all agreed this was the juiciest, tastiest and most delicious turkey we'd ever had! We had apple cider on hand, so added about 2 cups in addition to the brine ingredients. Used chicken stock instead of vegetable. Will be using this recipe from now on!

      My husband Rick & I made this last year and it was the best turkey ever! We brined it in a clean cooler over night. This was the first time I have had white meat that was juicy. Take the time to do this you will not be sorry! I did use regular ginger because the store didn't have candied and think that was even better.

      This turkey was awesome! Used chicken broth instead and used 1 1/2 tbsp candie ginger by mistake. Made incredible soup afterwards!

      Easier than it sounds. I have made my last couple turkey's this way. It cooks faster and is super moist!
