    Seven years ago I got tired of BAD turkey. Many Many years of dry and one raw turkey on the table, my family and inlaws just couldn't pull off a good turkey. Then only good ones I had were cooked or fried by a pro but that's $$.

    Scouring the Internet I came upon Alton Browns's (From the show Good Eats). I followed his instructions and it came out sooooo good and moist and cooked correctly I've taken over the turkey baking from that year on. I don't trust anyone unless I quiz them.

    Brining and meat temperature thermometers are the key, but thawing and getting a 18lb MAX bird are close seconds.

    Last, it covers carving!

    So be the hit of your families or friends T day gathering or cook for yourself.


    Here are the videos for the episodes and a link to the food network so you don't need to take notes.

    I used his recipe last year and I definitely concur. We have enough people over that we need two. Wifey-mate and I get in a turkey cooking contest.

    We used his brine around 6 years ago and loved it. Now we like using the rottesserie, but Alton's recipe definitely rocks.
