Flavor Seed’s Anything With Wings Thanksgiving Turkey

Serves 8  

Fried, Roasted, or Smoked; however, you decide to cook your Thanksgiving turkey make sure it’s the best turkey ever by using our secret ingredient Anything With Wings.


Thanksgiving turkey Flavor Seed Anything With Wings Organic



  • 12-20 pound turkey
  • 2-4 ounces of Anything with Wings Seasoning
  • 2 cups kosher salt
  • 1 quart of milk (or buttermilk) optional
  • 5 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Peanut Oil (if Frying)



  1. If the turkey is frozen: thaw in the refrigerator, 24 hours for every 5 pounds of turkey.
  1. Rinse turkey and remove giblets, neck, or other internal organs.  (Save for gravy)
  2. Add turkey to large pot, add 1-2 ounces of Anything With Wings, 2 cups Kosher Salt, 1 quart of milk, add water (if needed) to cover turkey completely. Brine turkey overnight for at least 12 hours.
  3. Remove turkey 1 hour prior to cooking, pat dry, allow turkey to come to room temperature, discard brine
  4. Rub turkey with 5 Tablespoons of olive oil and 1-2 ounces of Anything with Wings.  Make sure oil and seasoning is put under breast skin/fat.  For a 12 pound bird I typically use half a jar during this step.
  5. Cook using your desired method.  We always fry a bird and roast a bird, but you can’t go wrong either way.  If roasting or smoking make sure to baste often.
