 I know how to cook a turkey, but I am looking for something different this year. So I was hoping some of you ladies would share your cooking secrets. Thanks

I go plain.

We tried the whole salt water brine and came back to plain.

Butter and spices under the skin, bake. :)

seasoning it ( poultry season, stuff it with red potatoes, carrots, & celery and toss it into the cooking bag with a box and a half of chicken stock. Oh and I mix some seasoning and stock together and inject it into the bird.

My mom puts it into some salt brine thing for like 24 hrs.

On the BBQ. It leaves the oven free for other things.

 I like to stuff my turkey with homemade stuffing then I coat the bird in a thin layer of mayo (this helps crisp the skin and keeps the turkey moist) and a mixture of salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and rosemary. Cover the bottom of the pan with water and cover the bird with tinfoil until the last hour then cook without the foil to brown. No basting required and it taste really yummy.
