    Soraiya Wilkins's Note:

    We usually buy extra turkeys around Thanksgiving when they are on sale and I always experiment with different spices and I tried this and it was delicious. It also makes its own gravy.

      This was by far the best turkey I have ever made this Christmas! I used the liquid for gravy, adding only some flour mixed with water and it was excellent. I would definately recommend it for any size turkey(mine was 20 pounds).

      Very moist delicious turkey! I did my Thanksgiving turkey this way and it was perfect. I had a 12 lb. turkey, cooked at 400 for 45 minutes and then 325 for another 2 hours. nLoved it and the gravy was good too! Thanks for sharing, I will use this again.
