I always cook my turkey in a brown paper bag. It gets nicely browned, is very moist because it gets steamed, and takes less time to cook. I rinse my bird inside and out, dry with paper towels, run some vegetable oil in the cavity and rub oil all over the outside, salt inside and out, then rub butter inside and out. Then I put the stuffing into the cavity. Next, I run some oil around inside the paper bag to oil all of its sides. Finally, I put the turkey in the bag, staple it shut, and put into my roaster. Into the oven it goes. Depending upon its size, it can take up to 45 minutes less time to cook. Be very careful opening the bag because the steam is very hot. I just start to tear the bag away from the turkey slowly to release the steam. Once you try this method, you will never cook a turkey any other way! This works for whole chicken too.
