I was pretty brave this year! After reading the reviews for the turkey, I decieded to make the turkey. Thanksgiving was at my sister in law's house, which created a problem. Without my wifes permission I asked my sister in law if I could make the turkey. So as I'm preparing the turkey and bring it over to her house I decieded to tell her, "I've never made a turkey before". She was really supportive and when the turkey was on its breast that through them for a loop.
Ofcourse the whole party was focused on this turkey. It better not be dry was the overall response. I'm not going to lie, I was so nervous. Flipping over the turkey was pretty tough since it was 24lbs, next time I'll use a lower roasting pan to help with the flipping.
After 5hrs 15mins the turkey was finished. Let's just say by the end of the night my new nickname was "TURKEY BOY" I've never tasted turkey so moist, even the white meat dripped of juices!! I soaked it in Celtic Sea Salt for about 16hrs and followed the veggies & added about 2 1/2 cups of white wine! Thanks for this outstanding recipe. This was my first turkey and I'll stay with this recipe for life. Thanks for making me a hero!!!
