I made this when hosting Thanksgiving dinner in 2015 and again in 2017 and it was a winner both times! The turkey is absolutely moist and succulent, with perfect skin and a finger-licking delicious jus/gravy. The only slight downside is that the cheesecloth tends to scorch and gets the kitchen a little smoky at first, but it works out great in the end. Forget about brining -- THIS is the way to cook a turkey!
Made this last year and it was AWESOME! It was jouicy and flavorful. And ever the color was gorgeous!
