    GingerlyJ's Note:

    It has taken several years and taking bits of pieces from here and there for me to make the perfect turkey, but It is so moist and has a wonderful flavor and always gets rave reviews. It's labot intensive but worth the effort in the end

      Used this recipe for my turkey last year and it was a hit!! I brined my turkey for 48 hours and I cooked it at 350. The turkey was so juicy and tender!! It was soooo good, there was hardly any left.

      It is worth all the work!! Best turkey I have ever had!! It did take alot longer to cook than I expected, but I was cooking a 19 lb tukey. Also I left it uncovered for the last hour so it browned nicely.
