    I usually hate turkey, but I made this recipe today (as a late thanksgiving redo) and it was delicious. I think next time I would do a lower temp to start as the skin got a bit burnt in the first half hour, and then a higher temp for cooking the rest, as some of the underside wasn’t done. But the dry brine and glaze will definitely be used every year from now on 🤤🤤

    Gonna have to put a dislike on this one.
    Google pixel didn't do anything justice & we didn't see the bird carved up. This would give a good indication as to how juicy the meat was post cooking.

      Brenda Hor I made this recipe for Thanksgiving this year and I didn't wash it off. Just made sure that the turkey wasn't resting in the juices so the skin could dry a bit everywhere then moved it to a clean pan with new foil.

    I cannot believe how arrogant, I mean confident, Andy is about cooking this turkey. He made it look so easy. Curious how the breast meat turned out. Was it juicy and delicious? I would want my turkey seasoned with herbs and spices verses sweet. Not sure how to make that happen.

    • Melissa Quezada

      Candis Carnegie I followed this recipe for Thanksgiving. I thought it was really good, nice and juicy. Everyone loved it so much that we didn't have any leftovers. I recommend trying it out

  • Joshua Mullin

    Turkey was a big hit at my Thanksgiving dinner last night. I had to cook two turkeys. I started the larger one in the oven and then transferred it to a roaster after the first 30 minute browning phase. Did the second turkey in the oven entirely. My grandpa said "I haven't had a moist turkey in years. That was great." It really was, though the dark meat on one bird was definitely not fully cooked, we had enough moist white meat and the dark meat from the other bird to compensate.

    I made this turkey for thanksgiving this year and it was the juiciest turkey I’ve ever made. Only exception to the recipe I did was; I didn’t have a roasting tray that holds the turkey out of the juices so I sliced 2 oranges in half and put them under the turkey to hold it out of the juices

    Ended up making this. It got rave reviews from everyone. When cooked properly (taken out at 150° and left to rest for an hour) its extremely tender. The glaze is very fragrant and strong when cooking but mellows to a wonderful sweetness on the turkey and doesn't get in the way of the natural flavor. Definitely a keeper.

    Today my sister and I made this recipe for our thanksgiving turkey and it was honestly delicious. Our turkey was larger at 17lbs but we just ended up adding extra ingredients as far as the basting sauce went. We also added some lemon peels as well. The skin was dark and crispy and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it tasted, I was woried the flavors wouldnt come through but they really did and all of my family enjoyed it. We'll most likely be doing this turkey again next year, so thank you Andy for the delicious recipe share!

    Ok. So I just had to come back to this video and say that this recipe is amazing. I spatcocked the turkey and rested it on root veggies and herbs (from the ba turkey video from two years ago with Carla), but other than that, that is the only change to the recipe. I was skeptical that the dry brining would make the turkey crazy salty but I needn't worry. This is the best turkey I've ever made. Thank you!

    Lol does anyone watch your videos for cooking? Jesus@ comment section. Anyway. I’m trying this tmrw. Only ad lib is I mean to mix some of the aromatics of the baste to the butter that will go under the skin. Oh also: I cannot find sherry vinegar anywhere in Pittsburgh. 1/2 apple cider and 1/2 red wine plus pinch of sugar is what I’m subbing unless someone has a suggestion. Thanks for the vid. Ps: no one who knows what a cooler is “grew up with coolers” wth are you talking about
