The liquid in the bottom of the roasting pan will keep the turkey moist as it cooks.

Best turkey hands down. The more butter the better!

This was my first time hosting Thanksgiving and my first time EVER cooking a turkey. I followed this recipe, with a few changes. I personally had all of the herbs listed in my cabinet so I used dried herbs vs. fresh, and I realized the morning that I didn't have sage. I used 1 tbs of each herb, I didn't measure the oil and only used 1/2 of a clove of garlic. Regardless of my changes this was THE BEST turkey that I have ever tasted! My family was so impressed that I am the official turkey cooker!

Tried last yr, but without cider, or all herbs......... was still great, but this yr I look forward to full experience.
I also cook the M.S. Pineapple Cranberry Chutney, herb dressing, sweet potatoes,green bean casserole,roasted vegetables and potatoes and pumpkin seeds.
My wife and daughter are from China, and had never had a thanksgiving turkey dinner - and now they greatly enjoy it.
The recipes are great and will win over the tastes of many foreign born American Citizens. Highly Recommended!
I tried this recipe a few years ago when I cooked my first Thanksgiving and it turned out really great. The flavor was wonderful and the meat was tender. I am cooking again this year so this is the recipe I will use but I think I will cook it breast down for the first half of cooking time.
