WATCH YOUR TIME! My husband and I have used this method for the last 3 years. By far the best turkey we have ever had and we continue to get rave reviews about it. Here is our secret: Thaw turkey for 5 days in fridge. Follow direction as stated above (although we use stuffing and fill the bird within and inch or so of top of cavity). Put 6 slits in the bag. When it comes to timing We usually have a 16lb bird that we cook at 350 for 2 hours and 15 minutes. When the time is up we take it out of the oven and put the lid of the roasting pan on it. The turkey serving platter then sits on top. We leave it on the counter for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Even then, when we go to take it out of the pan, it is too hot to touch with bare hands. Snip the corner of the bag as someone is holding the bird up to get out juice for gravy. Carve up the bird and enjoy!
