I am looking forward to using this again this year. Tried it last year. It was great. My husband said the white meat was the juiciest he had ever had in his life. And he's had alot of turkey dinners!!!

This was my first turkey and I knew my best chance of it being great was to brine it. It turned out perfectly! So juicy, I'm definitely keeping this recipe!

I had very high hopes for this recipe because the brine smelled ridiculously good. It smelled like thanksgiving the day before thanksgiving. However, i don't think any of the actual seasonings penetrated the flesh at all. It just tasted like turkey, not a brined turkey.

Absolutely fabulous... do you remember your Grandma or Mom's turkey dinners? They were scrumptious but usually a little on the dry side until Grandma began brining. Beautifully moist and tender while maintaining those traditional flavours where turkey tastes like turkey rather than a bird with a foreign taste which can happen with some brine recipes. The gravy is so tasty but be careful with the salt as the brine has done that for you. If you save the carcass and use it later for soups or stews, the flavours are tremendous as well because when you brine, it penetrates the bones right through. If you try it once, it will become a must do every time you roast a turkey. Yummmmmmmy
