This is amazing! My roommate and I were in charge of the turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. No one knew it was our first time, turned out perfect and now we have to do it every year!
I've only made 2 turkeys on my own - both using your recipe - and the meat goes so fast - there hasn't been leftovers! This is a great recipe and I'll continue to wow my family with it. Thanks so much for posting it!
i will never do a turkey another way. Perfect.
For moist, flavorful and cooked to perfection turkey, try this! I made Shirley's Sausage Stuffing to have with it, and it couldn't have been better. Amazing meal!!!.
Yummy! My family loved it! Sooo moist! I used half the vegetable stock and more water. I didn't cover it with foil while roasting. This is the only way I will make turkey in the future!
I will never make a turkey any other way again. I used vegetable bouillon instead of stock to save money - it was very economical to do it that way. My husband says he's never had a moister turkey - ever. He can't stop talking about it. From a 20 lb bird - there was no leftover! Our guests DEVOURED it.
I used water instead of stock, and didn't use the allspice berries. It turned out beautifully - the flavors of the brine really permeated the meat and it was delicious!
Wow...I couldn't believe how good this turkey was. I have never liked tukey. But this year I actually ate it and enjoyed it!! It did take quite a bit longer than 2.5 hours but I'm blaming that on the ridiculous oven in the cabin we rented. Thank u so much for posting. You have turned me into a turkey consumer :)
Removed the tinfoil 15 minutes before removing from oven to get skn crispy.
I was always a drumstick girl...until this year! The white meat was so moist and tender that I think next year I will make two breasts instead of a whole turkey. Followed the recipe exactly except I used a 2 quarts of stock and 2 quarts of water for the initial brine mixture. I will never make turkey any other way again.
