What, you're not frying your turkey? You're opting for the traditional roasted route? Yeah, we don't blame you. In fact, we encourage you to try this recipe from our pal Alton Brown. He explains every detail, from the brine—a mix of vegetable broth, brown sugar, black peppercorns, allspice berries, and candied ginger—to the roasting.
Many of the SE'rs have used it with great results.. "It makes a stunning bird," raved Bunnyman. However, as you'll find out in the recipe, Alton is a stuffing hater! He's all about cooking the "dressing" on the side.
