Great video! However I would suggest removing the gizzards prior to washing the turkey for less chance of bacterial contamination.

Loved this video. Wished I had seen it last year. I will surely do it this year. Probably use bottled sage and rosemary due to our markets do not carry fresh herbs.

Tried this recipe and it really is amazing! Just make sure you let your turkey thaw (in a dish to catch the juices) in the fridge at least 3 days (I recommend a week) before you try to cook it.
