    I saw this recipe when I was watching Tyler Florence on the tv network. I tried it last weekend and it was perfect. Will make any thanksgiving turkey moist and flavorful! Cooking time is for marinating time.

      The best turkey I have ever eaten. Last year I used 2 cups of salt and it was a little too salty. This year I cut out 1/2 cup salt, added an extra head of garlic, parsley, sage, white wine and what ever water needed to cover bird. It brined for 24 hours and then we smoked it (12 pound bird) in a smoker for 4 1/2 hours. It was fabulous. Just finished it. My husband said that he has never eaten anything like it before.

      This makes the best turkey...was skeptic at first. A couple of years ago, I bit the bullet and tried it. Have been using this recipe every year since. Thanks for posting.
