      The turkey tasted great with this rub. I rubbed it under the skin then poured a pot of boiling water over it so the skin would shrink up on the turkey and seal it in, then pat dried the outside and rubbed the rest on. I put on a bed of thickly sliced onions and put a can of chicken broth in the bottom. I also basted it twice in the last hour. The turkey was about 7 lbs and it took about 3 1/2 hrs to cook all the way through!

      Delicious way to prepare a turkey breast. The meat was super moist and juicy. The spice rub was very tingly, but not too hot. Didn't make the gravy, but I am sure it would be great. Thanks for a great recipe.

      I used this recipe on a butterball boneless turkey roast (basically turkey breast tied w/ string.) We all enjoyed it. I didn't get to make the gravy since I didn't have any drippings, so my gravy was made w/ butter instead. I will probably make it again but I might experiment w/ other ways of preparing first.
