    Here's what I do:

    FOR THE BRINE
    1 gallon vegetable stock
    1 cup Kosher salt
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    3 tablespoons minced garlic
    1 tablespoon black peppercorns
    1 tablespoon dried rosemary
    1 tablespoon dried sage
    1 tablespoon dried thyme
    1 tablespoon dried savory
    2 bay leaves
    1 gallon heavily iced water
    1 turkey, 12 to 22 pounds

    FOR THE AROMATICS
    1 red apple, sliced
    1/2 onion, sliced
    1 cinnamon stick
    1 cup water
    4 sprigs rosemary
    4 sprigs sage (or about 1/4 cup fresh leaves)
    softened butter
    melted butter

    Combine the vegetable stock, salt, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, peppercorns, rosemary, sage, thyme, savory and bay leaves in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally to dissolve solids and bring to a boil. Then remove the brine from the heat, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate.

    Combine the brine, water and ice in the 5-gallon bucket. Place the thawed turkey (with innards removed) breast side down in brine. If necessary, weigh down the bird to ensure it is fully immersed, cover, and refrigerate or set in cool area for 24 to 48 hours, turning the bird once half way through brining.

    Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Remove the bird from brine and rinse inside and out with cold water. Discard the brine.

    Place the bird on roasting rack inside a roasting pan and pat dry with paper towels.

    Combine the apple, onion, cinnamon stick, and 1 cup of water in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Add steeped aromatics to the turkey's cavity along with the rosemary and sage. Spread softened butter under the skin of the breast and wherever else desired. Tuck the wings underneath the bird and coat the skin liberally with melted butter.

    Roast the turkey on lowest level of the oven at 500 degrees F for 30 minutes. Insert a probe thermometer into thickest part of the breast and reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Set the thermometer alarm (if available) to 161 degrees F. A 14 to 16 pound bird should require a total of 2 to 2 1/2 hours of roasting. Let the turkey rest, loosely covered with foil or a large mixing bowl for 15 minutes before carving.

    I just got this in the brine on Sunday night (I like to soak it a long time). Usually this is my only responsibility, but I'm doing everything this year. Turkey, ham, bacon-almond green beans, grandma's stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, apple pie, pumpkin pie...

    I'm already tired...

    I hear ya. I am doing two trukeys this year. One on the smoker and one in the oven. I am actually trying to get away from the vegetable stock brine but i might give the Worcestershire a try. Looks like you have taken Alton's recipe and tweaked it?

    I'm using the smoker as a second oven and holding warmer, lol. Yep, it's Alton's with a tweak or two. He's never steered me wrong...I'm making his apple pie as well.

    I usually just use Knorr boullion cubes to make the stock, but grabbed some "Better Than Boullion" this year. I'm sure you could swap it out with chicken or turkey stock, and it would be just as good. Even omitting the stock would probably be great, but maybe add in some rough-chopped onion.
