The Attention-Hungry Turkey of Moistness

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
You CAN slow cook a turkey at 240 degrees without any problems. I cook at a resturant and we use an Altosham cook and hold oven. I agree that opening the oven first doesn't give a consistant temperature, second wastes energy to reheat the oven, but if the bird reaches 175 to 180 degrees internal temp it doesn't matter how the bird is cooked. Cook and hold ovens that resturants use to cook turkey, prime rib stuff like that cook for longer periods of time at much lower temps. Most cook and hold ovens only go to 250. As an example it will take me 10 hours of cooking at 240 for a 25lb turkey. The oven then goes into a hold cycle of 160 degrees. The minimum hold time is 3 hours with a max hold time of 10 hours. So it could take 12-14 hours to fully cook a 25lb turkey. This is the way resturants are able to make turkey juicy. Lower temps/longer cooking = juicy! This can be done in a conventional oven as well.
