I followed instructions, except our turkey breast was 5#.. I stuck with the initial amount of marinade. We used a thermometer that was left in during roasting. Considering our turkey breast was 2.5x the weight of the recipe, I thought I'd follow another reviewer and begin with 450 degrees, then pop it down to 375 after 20 minutes, and then take it out when the thermometer said 160. Well, a little bit over an hour after it went in, it said 160. I had basted 3 times. The skin was like leather. I had an awful time trying to carve the turkey breast, which was on the bone, and the meat was dry. Very dry. I'm not sure what happened here, but I didn't like it. We ate one serving and threw the leftovers away. A waste of good bourbon. I'm sorry to say, but this recipe did not work out here, nor was much flavor imparted to the meat from the marinade.
