Turkey with pics

So I found this turkey for .99 cents per pound. I used the amazingribs.com recipe. It was "enhanced" so I didn't brine it like I wanted to as most of my readings suggested it would be too salty. Anywho I injected it with some butter to help amp up the flavor. Long story short it turned out visually impressive but I was woefully underwhelmed with the flavor. I detected little to no saltiness in the meat whatsoever. Breasts were a little dryish to me. Thighs were good and moist. Took them to 160 and 170 respectively and let them carry over another 5 degrees before carving.

  • Bird looks great, sorry to hear the taste wasn't what you were looking for.
    Austin Egghead did one on some incredible root veggies, with a parted out bird I suggested she use. Her technique produces a moist bird with some flavourful veggies and gravy.
    This has become our go to for turkey. 

    If the bird is small enough, you can also spatchcock it.

    What temp did you go with? I've done a 9 lb turkey on my small and a 22 lb one on my large for thanksgiving and they both were so moist I will never cook one in a oven again.
