This was my fourth time using this recipe, and thought I should finally write a review! It is the best Turkey i have ever tasted and have now converted my whole family and co-workers to cooking it this way. I used what ever spices I have on hand, but ALWAYS use the broth and oranges. Amazing recipe!

I used hickory wood smoking packages on the grill and used Montreal Chicken rub on the bird, so I only vary loosely followed this recipe... but putting the turkey in the roasting pan and using the broth made for a ridiculously tender bird. People raved about the moisture and flavour.
