I'm glad this has so many positive reviews. I'm hosting my first Thanksgiving this year and am going to try this out. I'm pretty adept at most cooking/baking but have never made a turkey before. FINGERS CROSSED!!

I tried this recipe this Christmas for my family of 14!. I have never cooked a turkey before!. It was so deliciously moist and brown!. Everybody loved it so much that there was no turkey left!. From one big Aussie fan....THANK YOU CHEF JOHN!. :) Next year wil try turkey with stuffing!. Of course shall follow your video. :))
