Perfect Turkey
It was moist...but it was salty, and that ruined dinner for me. I followed the recipe exactly. It was NOT a Butterball, which already is brined. I rinsed the bird at least 6 times when it came out of the brine...but it was still salty! Maybe my taste is weird...others thought it was salty but okay, my Mom and I thought it was really too salty. Anyone with any hints to what I could have done differently? I read all the reviews and expected it to be delicious...

Baby Back Ribs
What an awesome way to cook ribs! Yes, it's not really a recipe, but why re-invent the wheel? I used KC Masterpiece Original and wrapped them in half rack portions. After 5 hrs marinating, I baked them for 2 1/4 hrs, unrapped and added more BBQ sauce, then gave them 5 min on the BBQ...no more or they would have burned. The family said the best they have EVER eaten at any restaurant anywhere!!! Thank you, Ken, for another family favorite!

Coffee Roasted Beef Chuck
This was definitely a 10 in our family book! We're not coffee drinkers; it was mostly out of curiosity that I tried the recipe. I usually read all the reviews but didn't this time...I was just looking for a chuck roast recipe for which I had all the ingredients! Instead of using less coffee, I used MORE because my coffee maker is 10 cups, and I figured I'd just get a little more gravy. Reading the reviews, later, and hearing it was rather a strong coffee flavor, it was a little scary since we don't drink coffee. I added 2 Lipton Onion Mushroom Soup Mix packets to balance out the coffee and some thick sliced potatoes and baby carrots to round out the dish. At the end, the taste was DELLICIOUS! There was SO MUCH gravy however, that, after I removed the meat and vegetables, thickened the gravy and added the sour cream, I added some couscous to the gravy. I used 2 5.45 oz boxes (less the flavor packets, of course) and, while it was quite a bit thicker than we would have preferred, it was absolutely wonderful! I think I'll make it again this weekend to take to my parent's home for Father's Day! Thanks for a winner, Luella...
