This was my first Thanksgiving, and I have never cooked a turkey before. I didn't even know what "brining" was until the day before Thanksgiving! I followed the recipe, but left out the garlic and we only let it set for about 14 hours since we had decided at the last minute to try it. It was fantastic!!
The turkey cooked a lot faster than I had planned (10 pound turkey took 3 hours, instead of the recommended 4).
And the meat was so tender, it was just falling off the bone - no need to carve at all!!
This was so easy to do, and the results are great - you would be silly not to do it!
