I have never brined a turkey before. This was the best turkey I had ever made! My family was very impressed. Will always use the brining method in the future.

This was a great, simple recipe. I couldn't find vegetable stock, which is required for most other brines, but I had almost everything for this recipe. I only had dried herbs, but it still worked great. This gives the turkey a nice juicy flavor, without a lot of herb and citrus notes that you find in other brines. I brined the turkey for 24 hours before roasting.

I have used this for four years now. My family was scared it would destroy their traditional roasted turkey. After eating it they would not want me to switch back to no brine!

Was great! Made my turkey very juicy. Just be careful to not keep the turkey in for too long as it does make it very salty.

I used this brine in conjunction with the Herb-Glazed Roasted Turkey, also on Allrecipes.com, so it's tough to say if the brine was totally successful in doing what it was supposed to accomplish. However, my turkey was moist and tasty, so I figure it probably did what it was supposed to do. A quick warning though.... "Ready in about 1 1/4 hours" is WAY off! I "set aside to cool completely".... In fact, it sat on my deck in 40 degree weather to cool down and after 4 hrs it was still close to 60 degrees. Not a temp to start brining a turkey! Make this WAY ahead of time and allow to cool. Don't wait until the last minute.
