easy to follow and worked out great. Cranberry orange relish from TJ's goes great with this.

everyone says I'm crazy when I tell them to start the turkey (or chicken) out at 500 but I've sworn by it for years, it never fails

This was the best turkey we have ever made! Moist and tender with a light flavor. Everyone raved about it!

We have been using this recipe for 6 years now and it never fails. Best turkey ever- moist & tasty.

My wife and I have been doing this for years. Alton's brine has changed a lot of minds about Thanksgiving turkey. Everyone must try this, don't miss out!
