i used this recipe for my very first thanksgiving turkey about 5 years ago. we all loved it. i got so many compliments. even my hubby's step dad liked it and he hates turkey. i did change a couple things. i didn't have a pot big enough so i used a new and clean 5 gallon bucket with lid. we have a second fridge in the garage and the bucket fit just fine in there. i did a practice turkey and found that while it was more moist than usual it was still a bit dry in the breast area. so i added an apple inside the turkey. i cored it and cut it into wedges. the apple helped to make it more moist. it was delicious and the gravy made from the juices had a sweetness to it. another reviewer said their turkey fell apart when turning it over. trussing the turkey should keep that from happening.
