MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 25, 2015

"The fact that it is so simple and easy would give it enough stars but the taste is out of this world! I've tried other spice mixes but always return to this one. Next time I make this I think I will make a big shaker of this mix so I don't stray again. My husband and I rave about it to anyone that will listen. It sounds too good to be true. I would take this over standard Thanksgiving turkey any day.

Used on both turkey with the bone and straight turkey breast. I may use this on all poultry slow cookers."

"Loved this recipe! My kids said it was better than the turkey I make at Thanksgiving. I made a few changes, but nothing too extreme. Our grocery store didn't have a bone in turkey bigger than 3 1/2 lbs., so I used two 3 lb. boneless turkey breasts. I used the same seasoning, but added a dusting of poultry seasoning. And instead of putting water in the bottom of the slow cooker, I used chicken broth. This was the most delicious and moist turkey breast I have ever eaten. We will definitely make this on a regular basis."

"This was tasty and moist. I substituted garlic salt for the dried garlic/seasoned salt and added some poultry seasoning to the other ingredients. I had a 6 pound turkey breast which I cooked for 5 hours. I think it was probably done a little before that, but I wanted to make sure it was thoroughly cooked. This is perfect if you are serving a small number of guests."

"Everybody enjoyed this at Thanksgiving dinner today. My 7-1/2 lb. turkey breast was done to perfection in 6 hours, moist and flavorful but not falling apart. Taking the skin off before cooking was a bit of a project, but I'm glad I did it because we don't eat the skin anyway, and this way the meat was able to absorb all the flavor of the spice rub. I'm not a fan of Italian seasoning so I subbed rosemary for that, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. And using the slow cooker freed up oven space I needed for other things, so that was a bonus."

"This came out perfect.

Can the same recipe be used for a a 6 pound boneless turkey breast?"
