Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
I've been making turkeys for 20 years, and this one was the BEST! I've tried slow-roasting, the bags, basting every 1/2 hour... this was the easiest and moistest bird of the lot. I followed the directions exactly. I did prepare the bird the night before and put it in the fridge overnight. Pretty sure that didn't alter the results either way. The 17 lb. bird I cooked took a total of 5 hours, 15 mins, which was longer than I expected, but it was worth it. Golden brown skin, moist breast meat, and succulent dark meat were worth the wait. My family loved it so much, that they've requested it in place of the Christmas ham!
