There's a reason why this recipe has 5 stars with 4,156 reviews. I usually cook turkeys differently but this year I decided to brine this time. And of course, I had to go with Alton Brown's recipe.

Very nice! I did it without corn, but with cucumbers and bell peppers and it was delicious! Also, I used the reduced fat mayo from Trader Joe's. Definitely a must try for carrot lovers!
