This unforgettable bird is brined overnight in a maple, bourbon and orange solution, brushed with a maple and bourbon glaze, then roasted to golden brown perfection. One bite, and your holidays will never be the same.
Real maple syrup is the only way to go for this recipe. For the most flavor, look for dark amber-colored syrup.
If your turkey is frozen, it’s important to remember to allow enough time for thawing, since turkey must be completely thawed before brining. To thaw this size of whole turkey, place turkey (in its original wrap) in pan in refrigerator 2 to 3 days.
