I recommend this recipe to anyone who wants an easy, delicious bird. This recipe turned out great for me... I followed it exactly.
I followed the recipe exactly. It was very easy to do. I bought a 12 lb. turkey but when the 3 hours were up the turkey was not done. The breast was almost done but the legs and thighs were still bleeding. I had to put it back in but by the time the dark meat cooked, the breast was dried out. I cried all Christmas dinner.
Thank You, Thank you, thank you!!! This is an excellent recipe!! Simple, but simply perfection!! The bird is so moist, and no fuss with brining!!
Good recipe for flavour. I will definitely do this again. My problem was the temp. For an 11 lbs unstuffed turkey, it took 4 hours, and it was still iffy by the bone. I will start my next one at 400 F, breast down for 1 hour. Then flip it breast side up, reduce temp to 325 F for 2 more hours. This is my tried and true method, and the meat literally falls off the bone. Looking forward to combining these recipes. Yum!
This was my first year cooking a turkey from scratch. The recipe is flexible but the technique that he explains in the video made this year a complete 100% success! Thanks Chef John!
Great video! For those of us that have been cruising by while Mom made the Turkey each year and all of a sudden it's our turn and we haven't got a clue.
Made a delayed Thanksgiving Dinner today....Absolutely the best Turkey Ever!! So moist and flavorful. Try this recipe and drain the juices and add chicken stock to make the gravy at the end. You will not be sorry.
I know this recipe says for beginners and first-time turkey makers but I have been cooking the Thanksgiving meal for my family for over 20 years and this is still my favorite way to cook a turkey. There are fancier methods out there but I think turkey is one of those foods that is so delicious all by itself that it doesn't really need all those bells and whistles. This easy recipe gives you a delicious juicy beautiful turkey every single time. Thanks Chef John for another winner!!
Excellent! My new stand by And yet again - another perfect turkey:) Thanks Chef John
