  1. I just spatchcocked a turkey and smoked it on my pellet smoker for Thanksgiving. I had NEVER had a turkey that had that much juice inside of it but there wasn't a ton of extra flavor. I will definitely be trying your method next time I make a turkey. Probably will change it up a little and use the smoker over using the oven. That Pit Boss is the most foolproof thing I have ever used and I wish that I had gotten one when they first came out! Bon apatite.

  2. So we were invited to friends for Thanksgiving- food was fine and, of course so wonderful to socialize. But…my husband and I wanted to cook our own Thanksgiving meal. So now 1 week after Thanksgiving, we did it- We followed your Turkey and gravy recipe. Only difference is that the husband cooked it on the grill in a rack on a foil tray.
    So…. OMG, OMG
    seriously Chef Parisi, this may have been THE BEST- most savory and most tender turkey that I have EVER eaten. (And I’m no spring chicken 😅)
    Wow wow wow YOU’RE THE BEST!!!!! (as are your recipes)
    Thank you! Grazie

  3. I used this herb butter on my Turkey this year and it was the BEST Turkey I’ve ever made! My whole family just kept raving about how moist and delicious it was. Thank you! Have a Merry Christmas 🎄 I’m looking forward to seeing what you make for Christmas dinner 🙏

  4. Thanks for this recipe! I attended a family member's Thanksgiving this year and their turkey was good, but not great. I have a turkey in my freezer that I will be trying out with this recipe soon! Thanks!

  5. Chef you are the reason my Thanksgiving was such a success! I used this turkey recipe, the trussing technique and carving technique from last years turkey video + your gravy video.

    I love how you talk about the “things that elevate your every day cooking”, because that’s exactly what’s missing in 99% of modern recipes. If you’re willing to put in the time & effort, you can ensure those flavors will be next level. Absolutely love your content and look forward to everything you put out.

  6. My family says I fix the best, juiciest turkeys. You just proved that I don't. I do all what you say with exception of bacon and I put the herbs inside the turkey. Also I don't flip it. I just have to try this method!

  7. I roasted a 20 lb turkery following this recipe. It turned out DELICIOUS! It was so tender, and moist. The flavor was sooo good. Thanks for sharing your recipes and skills! This one is a definitely a KEEPER!!

  8. I thought your video quite interesting. For the past 30 years I have been roasting my turkeys with bacon on the breast side right from the start. I usually use Maple bacon, but I also put my home-made mushroom with almonds stuffing inside. I start the turkey with tin foil over the whole thing and take it off for the final roasting time so the bacon browns up. I do not use a rack or any butter under the skin… the gravy ends up tasting marvelous from the juices it makes. This year though I am going to do Spatchcocked Turkey with bacon.
