    Even though I skipped the brining step, the turkey was tender and flavorful and the gravy was outstanding. It was easy to prepare with few ingredients. I had extra butter that I wasn't able to fit under the skin so I used the extra to cook vegetables for stuffing (Classic Herb Bread Dressing from this site.) Huge hit with the family for Thanksgiving. I plan to make this again next year. Great recipe!

    Moist and full of flavor. Best turkey recipe I have used for Thanksgiving (so far). Going to use it again this Thanksgiving!

    This was my first time cooking a turkey and I'm so glad that I came across this recipe. The turkey came out perfect and juicy! I didn't brine it because I bought a frozen turkey. With the garlic sage butter I rubbed it under the skin, inside the bird, and even on the skin and then I added olive oil onto the skin followed by kosher salt and pepper and it was delicious. Oh and the gravy was amazing too! I'll definitely be using this recipe again!

    The best turkey I ever made. Ended up having to make much more brine to cover the entire turkey. Also added a bunch of spices to the brine. Not sure if it made a difference, but the turkey was incredibly tender.

    We made this turkey for Thanksgiving and received rave reviews. It was outstanding - the best we ever had. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
