Made it today -- totally AWESOME. Just what I was looking for: Tender turkey that comes out like a supermarket deli chicken, soft, tasty, and juicy. I ate the wings before I was even done carving, and it was Turkey Heaven! I made a 23-pound bad boy, and thank goodness I listened and put the half dozen 1/2-inch slits on the TOP of the bag, not on the sides or near the bottom at ALL, because a turkey on the big side like this one made SO MUCH JUICE/BROTH that it came up almost HALF WAY up the side of the turkey. On the loweset rack at 350 (like the Reynolds bag said), the liquid was literally bubbling and rolling. Also, I put the whole thing in the bag UPSIDE DOWN, to make sure the breasts were basting in the juices. They were SO SOFT. I followed the Reynolds bag directions, not the turkey wrapper directions, and they were spot on in that a 24 pounder took exactly 3 hours. I never thought it would be THAT fast, thought maybe 4-5, but Reynolds was right. It made so much broth you would have an abundance of gravy for every meal or sandwich you can make out of it, or do like I did and save big chunks of meat in freezer bags with the broth for a delicious turkey soup with carrots and egg noodles, etc. Still had 2 big chunks left for 2 Jennie-O size boneless size roasts, and two tupperwares full of two full meals a-la Thanksgiving style (with the leftover sides and trimmings). Used 2 red onions, 4 celery ribs, salt/pepper/sage/2 Tbls butter rub. IT'S A KEEPER! (see pic)
