DrGaellon, This was our frist try at this recipe the other day and the turkey came out a little too salty for our taste. My DH and I agreed we left the turkey too long for 24 hours otherwise the turkey was very tender and moist we will try this again but only for 6 hours. The only thing we did different from the recipe which might have influenced the salty taste my DH made his stuffing instead of the infusion of the aromatics and I did not use low sodium chicken broth. Otherwise I will make this again but to the specifications in the recipe. Many thanks for posting.
This is the only turkey recipe I've try every year. My entire family was amazed how the turkey came out. We're not a turkey eater, but this recipe made it tastes so well.
I have tried a lot of different ways to prepare turkey, and this is the best I have ever tried. This is destined to become a tradition in my house. The only change that I made was that since I couldn't find candied ginger, I used fresh ginger instead.
I also tried the Alton Brown method 3 years ago and have never gone back! The trick is the brine; it makes your turkey very tender and juicy in the end. This has become a NEW traditional recipe for our family and we plan to enjoy it year after year! Thank you for posting!
I tried the Alton Brown method this year, and wow!!!!!! This is the ONLY way to make a turkey. Do not be scared, just do it. It deserves 10 stars. Thanks!!
