It was a hit the first time I used this recipe. Will be doing it again this year. Thank you!

From reading the blog I assume there is more than one page, okay.

That's wonderful, but from my download the recipe is upside down, what do I do stand on my head? I'm not trying to be mean in such a wonderful occasion but God did not give me the ability to stand on my head to read a recipe. Unfortunately my printer is out. God Bless.

Two thumbs up for this brine. I tried it last year and the turkey was delicious as well as juicy, even the white meat was succulent. It's worth the time.

This turkey brine is so wonderful. I tried it last year for the first time and let the turkey sit in the brine overnight. The next morning I put it is the BBQ on a slow cook heat. I forget how long I had it on but when it came off and you cut into it the juices just flowed out of the turkey. My family went nuts over it. After six people had at it a 22lb turkey was gone cleaned to the bones. So much for my hot turkey sandwiches I like to make the next day. This year is going to be no different except I am going to do two turkeys. Having to borrow a neighbors BBQ but to see the happy faces and full family in the end it is all worth it. Thank You Gordon for sharing this Brine Recipe this is one for my books and I will not change a thing on it.

Please rethink using duty garbage bags as a container to brine turkey in, many garbage bags are treated with deordorants to keep fresh smelling and pesticides to control insects and neither are good to ingest.

I also used Godon's turkey brine recipe and the turkey was the best we have ever had. Everyone eating the turkey said how moist it was. Thank you Gordon!

I used Gordon's Turkey Recipe forThanksgiving, it was wonderful (along with the smell of it cooking). My friend who does not care for turkey told me he did not think anything could make the turkey taste good, but this one was really good. He actually took left over turkey home. So thank you Gordon and Kathryn. God Bless You

I cook my turkey in a roaster (instead of oven). Can we use the brining technique for that also?

Gordon really blessed my family with this receipe. I have made it four or five times. Everyone loves how juicy the turkey becomes and has a fantastic flavor and aroma. This is the one unanamous request I have for Thanksgiving. It's wonderful, really, try it.
