This was my very first Thanksgiving turkey and wow, it was a knockout. I followed the recipe to the letter, making sure to get the oil spice mixture under the skin as well. I cooked the turkey with my own stuffing until the breast came to an internal temp of 161. I then took it out of the oven and tented it with foil on the counter for 20 min and it got up to the reccomended 180 degrees. Moist and flavorful throughout the bird. The leftovers the next day were moist and you could still tast the spices, even the white meat was stil moist. My mother, who has been cooking the family turkey for 50 years, could not belive how moist the turkey came out. My husband and I agreed it was better than hers. Thanks for an easy, flavorful and moist bird. Why try anything else, this one is a perfect 10!
