Brined Turkey with Herb Butter

To ensure an exceptionally juicy and flavorful turkey, this recipe calls for brining the bird and also rubbing it with a compound butter. During brining, the seasoned saltwater penetrates the meat, drawing in moisture and other flavorings. The compound butter, made by combining room-temperature butter with our turkey herbs, is rubbed under the skin and on the outside of the bird. The butter melts into the meat, as the turkey roasts, so it stays moist and emerges with a crisp, golden-brown skin.

Makes my Christmas dinner
November 14, 2011
I have been making this turkey for the last few Christmas dinners. It makes the most wonderful, seasoned, juicy bird! The recipe is simple to follow and I have never had a turkey that tasted salty to me and I hate salt. One thing I do to save me even more time is place the turkey inside a turkey oven bag to cook. The oven bags are simple you place the turkey in, add a little bit of flour, put a few small slits in the top of the bag, close it up and walk away. I haven't had to come back to baste or even check on it, when the timer goes off the turkey is perfect and cooked all the way thru. My family absolutely loves this turkey. The brine is worth every penny, just buy it early if you need it for Christmas it tends to sell out.
Pros: Quick, Good Value, Easy, Appearance, Will Make Again

Did not care for the taste of the turkey with the flavored brine. Could not tast anything but the salty off flavord brine. Although it was very juicy. Cooked another turkey later with Herb Butter and that was very good. Would recommend Herb Butter with turkey or chicken.
