8 to 12 hours before cooking, put all except Gravy ingredients in gallon-size ziptop plastic bag. Seal and turn to mix ingredients.

NOTES : The nice thing about this recipe, especially if you throw it in the slow-cooker before leaving the house in the morning, is that turkey actually marinates overnight, which means you wont be cutting onions and garlic in the morning.
