this gets 5 stars because of how easy this is, especially for the first time turkey roaster, like me. my friends and i decided to have an impromptu thanksgiving meal on the hottest day so far this year, and i had to cook the turkey. the bird was so moist and perfectly browned when it was done. i stuffed it with my mom's sausage stuffing and sewed it shut. rubbed it with lots of butter and put butter under the skin between the breast like some other reviewers did. basted every half hour and it took 5 1/2 hour for a 19lb bird. the only thing i did a little differently was to cover the drumsticks for the first hour so they didn't overcook ( my mom said to do that, lol) oh, and i only cooked to 165 degrees and let it carryover for a half an hour. it was perfect. not too dry and cooked all the way through, even the stuffing.this really is a fool-proof method to cook a turkey. use this if you've never cooked a turkey, or if you've never cooked a good turkey. i promise it will come through for you.
