I've made this turkey recipe every year for 6 or 7 years for my family's Thanksgiving. They insist! It's the best turkey any of us have ever had. Thanks for posting it on here for easy access!

OK - I know this got 5 stars from EVERYONE on Cooking Light's website, but I don't know why. This was my first time using a brine. In the past I've always just used a Reynold's bag with some honey and butter. Honestly - this recipe didn't taste much different. No noticeable difference in the juicey-ness or tenderness. I will admit that based on the reviews on Cooking Light, I didn't make the gravy. I brined per the recipe, then made the turkey per the second step, and then cooked it in a bag. So - a good turkey, but not worth the effort in my opinion. But thanks for sharing!
