<<< The recipe looks really yummy, if also a LOT of work! That much
basil, though....I'd think it'd be pretty overwhelming.  I'll be
interested in hearing how you adapt it for a turkey breast...I have
room for one of those (although not a whole turkey, alas!) >>>

Room where? In you? Or in the refrigerator?

One of the reasons that I've stayed away from buying a turkey these  
last few years, other than the fact that it would be eating here at  
home only, since the relatives roast a turkey, is not having enough  
room in the refrigerator to keep one at safe temperatures until  
cooked. Unless I perhaps bought it frozen and let it thaw out in the  
kitchen or in an ice chest.

But if I'm going to brine it or use some of the other techniques  
talked about it would still need to go in the refrigerator for awhile.

(who *likes* turkey leftovers for sandwiches, or microwaving or  
cooking with BBQ sauce for sandwiches etc.)
