This was, hands down, the best turkey I've ever eaten. I combined your brining process with Oven Roasted Turkey With Sage Butter - Tyler Florence and it turned out to be the juiciest, most flavorful turkey we have ever eaten. No one could believe how good it was- everyone went back for seconds. Oh and I saved the peppercorns and threw them in the cavity before cooking. I only brined mine for 6 hours and combined my brining time with the time it took to thaw. Again, I could not believe how well this turned out!
