Relax: Here’s The Only Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe You Need In Your Life

Let’s cut to the chase: You want a turkey recipe for Thanksgiving that will wow your guests year after year. Stop. You can abandon that exhausting, confusing, relentless search through magazines, newspapers, or the suck-you-in internet.

Seriously, this is the ONE.

This bourbon- and maple-brined turkey is unbeatable. Hands-down, it’s our favorite turkey recipe. Independently, Steven and I have been making it for Thanksgiving for years to rave reviews.

Not only is it unbelievably flavorful and juicy, but it frees your oven (since it’s cooked on a grill or smoker) for all those glorious side dishes. Which we’ll cover next week! (Along with our invaluable Thanksgiving tips.)
