Judy, we tried your brined turkey, and I'm so glad we did! It was delicious. Everyone at dinner said it was the best turkey they have ever had. I didn't grill it. We put everything away to prepare for the blizzard we had a couple of days ago, and I didn't want to drag the grill out, but it was wonderful in the oven. I plan to use the recipe again for Christmas. Thanks so much!

Judy said...

Denise, thanks so much for the feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed the turkey as much as we did!

Lizzy said...
