This turkey was wonderful, I did do some things a little different: First I boiled the water, 1.5cups kosher salt, thyme and pepper for about 5min, let it cool completely. I spread 1cup of kosher salt all over the turkey, in and out, then placed the turkey into a small cooler and poured the brine mixture over the turkey and let it sit in the garage for about 17 hours. The next day, I wash the turkey very well with cool water, slit holes in the breast and legs and filled with chopped garlic, spread melted butter and olive oil ALL over the turkey and sprinkled with pepper and thyme, then I placed the turkey in the fridge for about an hour to chill. I still stuffed the turkey, but I covered/tented the turkey with tin foil for 2/3 of the roasting time, then the rest of the roasting time I removed the tin foil and watched it brown up, then let the turkey sit for about 30-45min and served. This was the best Turkey I have ever had and since I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for the first time this year, I was very proud (I submitted a photo if you would like to see how it turned out), I am going to do it all again this Christmas and Use it next year!!!! Enjoy, this is a MUST try recipe.
