I followed this recipe for our Thanksgiving turkey. I used a lot less bread for the stuffing and added a little fresh parsley and thyme, plus salt and pepper while using less sage (I didn't use fresh). I also sprinkled salt and pepper on the turkey before roasting. The instructions are excellent and it came out fabulous. I did defrost my turkey in the fridge for 4 days ahead of time. Thanks for posting!

I would caution against step number one. I did this one year, and the whole family got sick. If you plan to thaw a turkey like this, you better plan to stay up all night because you'll have to change the water every 2-3 hours! It's better to just thaw it in the fridge about 3 days before Thanksgiving (or whatever holiday).

Also, maybe there is frost inside the turkey, but I can guarantee, there is bacteria on the outside...
