After I spent years developing the perfect recipes for our family Turkey dinner I developed what many have told me are the recipes for the perfect turkey dinner, the perfect gravy, perfect cranberry sauce, and perfect sweet potato casserole.
I have finally decided to share them with you. Keep in mind that the secret to cooking that perfect Thanksgiving Turkey dinner is to start out with a turkey that is not frozen, but rather refrigerated only. The other part of your strategy is to brine the turkey for 24 hours in a saltwater and flavor profile solution. Then you open air dry age the turkey in the fridge another 24 hours, which helps you get that crispy skin. While the turkey is smoking out on the grill, I’ll show you my secret recipes for the other dishes to round out your perfect Christmas Turkey Dinner.
