I am only giving it 4 stars because I changed it, but this is a really good base to start out with. But what is great about brine is that you can really do no wrong, this is because it is more about the moistness instead of the flavor. I mean it add flavor, but if you add orange juice, your turkey isn't going to taste like an orange, maybe only slightly. But I used half a gallon of vegetable broth, and the other half gallon I used apple juice like others. I also used less salt since others complained about saltiness. I didn't have savory, so I didn't use that, but I couldn't tell the difference. I also added some Samuel Adams beer. This Turkey came out so moist and golden. My bf said he thought that turkeys couldn't really look like that. Some said it was best turkey they ever had, and my sister who doesn't like turkey told me that she even enjoyed it
