    Everyone really liked it. I wanted to do something different this year. I usually like a fried turkey. And i have done the brined turkey which is a huge pain. I will do this recipe again. Thank you.

    I’ve used this recipe for several thanksgivings. I used to be a huge fan of fried turkey because it kept the meat super moist. However, this recipe is fantastic. The cheesecloth keeps in all of the moisture. Best recipe.

    Turned out great. This is my second go at Thanksgiving dinner and this worked out like gangbusters! Everyone loved the turkey and went on about how moist it was.

    It was really good! I switched it up a bit, and took the cheese cloth off halfway through so the skin could be crispy, and I put some of the butter under the skin for extra flavor. Great recipe though !

    This is the best turkey ever!!! So moist and flavorful. I wouldn't even think about doing my turkey differently. If I could I would give it 10 stars. This is a must try.

    Sorry, but this recipe was awful. It was a mess to make and the result was not that good, especially considering the calorie count! Although I am a wine lover, I did not like the taste of the wine in this recipe. Basting the bird was a royal pain. I'll opt for the baking bag and the lack of a big mess!

    Vary good Hi, I think 350 might be too hot unless you have a small turkey, I messed with times along time ago, and found 300 best. I worry it might burn the cheesecloth unless its a small bird. That long slow cook really makes a difference to a juicy bird. If you do it you'll need to keep a close eye on it. Its probably around 10-13min unstuffed per pound, and best with a small bird. Thanks, Serena

    Sorry for the late review , but I just want to make sure I put in this review. This was my first time making the Thanksgiving dinner. My mom usually makes it but she was gone on a trip. I was very nervous and scare that it wouldn't come out good. My family loved it and yes it's juicy with great flavor. I highly recommend this recipe. Thank you for this great recipe I will use it for next year.

    The turkey was amazing. It had a good flavor and was very moist. I like the fact that the ingredients where minimal and easy to work with😄
