This will be my third thanksgiving using this recipe. It is a wonderful recipe producing the moistest turkey for the big day. We use to hate the white related to it's dryness. This is no longer ...

Tried this for Thanksgiving and I was told it was the best anyone had ever tasted so I am going to do it again for Easter!

Perfectly moist turkey that has a great flavor all the way through.
