Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
This is the BEST turkey recipe!! I've made 4 turkeys using this recipe (with a couple mods) and it always turns out wonderful! The flavor is great and its soo juicy! The mods I've made are: mixing the herbs with butter or olive oil and smothering the turkey under and over the skin as well as inside the cavity(the butter or oil helps the herbs stick to the bird), can of ginger ale instead of champagne, I also remove the legs and wings and bake separately. This reduces the cooktime to about 2 hours + broil time to make the skin golden brown and crunchy. I also pull it out when the internal temp is 165* because. I'm not cooking the dark meat. My turkeys are sooo tender cooking them thus way!!
