      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.

      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!
