"This recipe is amazing! The turkey was so moist and the gravy had great flavor! ( I forgot to use the bouillon cube and used closer to half cup flour to a cup of water for the gravy.) Definitely a keeper. Thank you so much for sharing!"

"Two simple suggestions: Unless you're a purist, skip the gravy part and get 1-2 bottles/cans of store-bought gravy. Saves time and effort, and tastes fine. Also, this is for everyone. Rub the spice mixture on under the skin for max flavor."

"This was delicious. The turkey had so much flavor, and the gravy was perfect. My only suggestion would be to add the flour to about 1/4 C hot water and stir vigorously until smooth, THEN add it to the boiling water."
