Roasted Thanksgiving Turkey. I made this on Father's Day (did the brine and gravy too, ntohing with the gizzards as that is just disgusting). It was to die for! Raves all around. Did a 14 pound turkey, 4 hours to cook.
This is the brining recipe I used last Thanksgiving! However, my steps were different. The steps I used I stole from food network, so, do what you will, but this makes an incredible Thanksgiving turkey!
