I took a chance on this recipe and I don't regret it! The night before Thanksgiving I decided to make it for the FIRST time, my husband's entire family was coming over. The turkey got rave reviews and everyone wanted to know how I did it. Thank you so much for the recipe. I do have to warn people of one thing. I did not read the recipe thoroughly enough and ended up at two different grocery stores the night before Thanksgiving (not fun) looking for WHITE WINE WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE because I didn't see the "white wine" part beforehand. I had never heard of it and discovered that it is the Lea & Perrins that is made for chicken (it says "blended with white wine and herbs"). Learn something new every day! Can't wait to use it on some chicken soon! Oh, the only change I made to the recipe was to use half oil, half melted butter.


I used this rub last year on a 12 lb turkey and it was so moist and wounderful! The turkey looked like it could've been on a food magazine cover. Easy too.


I took two big risks this Thanksgiving: I tried this rub for the first time and I smoked my turkey for the first time. The scary part was that I had 14 friends to serve with this untested rub and smoker. One week later, I'm still getting incredible feedback on how this was the best turkey many had ever had!!! Thanks.
