    We got a 10 pounds nice, I do recommend to use a bit more salt and pepper at the beginning and more butter too (one more spoon of all)

    I loved this recipe! I sprayed with olive oil twice (once at the beginning and once 15 minutes before done). I Stuffed with baby carrots and onion and wow! It was perfect. I also did a turkey brine 24 hours before but it was literally the best turkey ever!

    We did a 21 lb turkey, had to add more time but came out super moist. We’ll try this again using different seasonings and rubs but it’s a keeper.
    Turned out prefect I used a 20 pound turkey so it did take longer to cook

    tasted great but was done early and the cloth stuck down and ripped off some skin. probably just needs to be basted more often

    I didnt have any cheesecloth so I used a flour sack towel. I had to melt an additional stick of butter so that there would be enough butter to soak into the towel. It looks amazing!!!
