When you have cooked as many turkeys as I have in my life you have to get creative and try new flavor profiles. This maple bourbon turkey utilizes a tasty, wet brine to impart serious moisture and amazing flavor into turkey while creating a gorgeous final product with beautiful color. You can prepare this as a traditional turkey, but I prefer to spatchcock my turkeys. A spatchcock turkey cooks more evenly than a traditional whole turkey plus it presents beautifully and is easier to carve! We use our southwestern sweet heat rub, Texas Sugar, in this recipe but you can substitute your favorite seasoning.
