The life the turkey leads will vary considerably depending on the brand or retailer the turkey is destined for.The cheapest, unluckiest turkeys will live their entire lives in dark crowded barns where they will never see natural daylight. At the other end of the spectrum, the lucky ones live in forests, get good exercise and have no end of socialising and stimulation. The difference in the life the turkey has lead will usually be reflected in the cost of the bird.

The turkey we really encourage people to buy, however, is free-range. Access to the outdoors is so important for turkeys because they are naturally very inquisitive and need to be stimulated. The quality of the free-range space can vary, though, and the best birds come from farms where there is lots of space and pasture or forest areas for them to explore. Free-range birds tend to grow more slowly, meaning they have more flavour, more fat in their muscles and a better, firmer texture. For this reason, free-range turkeys are less likely to dry out when you cook them.

This recipe is a God Sent. This is the first time I cooked a 13 lbs turkey and I followed your recipe. I cooked the turkey for 2 hours and 45 minutes.everyone could not believe how juicy and tender the breast cooked. this turkey was by far the best I ever tasted and my company thought the same. This turkey tasted like a roasted chicken no after taste at all. Delicious Thank you so Much Natasha this is a 5 star recipe.

Delicious! The most juicy, moist turkey we have ever made. The only addition we did was add a sliced-up apple, 3 cut up carrots and3 cut up celery stalks to the pan. The entire family said it was one of the best turkeys they had and were surprised we did not use a bag.

I made this turkey last year and want to do it again but I have one big problem. I covered the breast with tin foil like it said but the skin underneath never became crispy. It cooked perfectly everywhere else. What am I doing wrong?

Made this tonight, brined my turkey for about 16 hours first. Followed the recipe to the letter, I only added more seasoning to the butter and outside of bird. It was so flavourful and made the best gravy. I never would have tried the lemon but wow did it make it good!

TO DIE FOR!! Seriously the best turkey I have ever made, my guests agreed.I did add a great dry brine as well with kosher salt, Blk pepper, fresh thyme, fresh sage finely zested citrus peel and smoked paprika. More flavour than a smoked turkey even. This is a keeper. Gone are the days of overcooked, dry, tasteless, must add gravy to eat turkey, this was delish!

No holiday feast is complete without a large platter of turkey for the family. Especially in this time where it is once again in vogue for larger groups to dine together for Christmas or Thanksgiving, you may wish to order a roasted turkey to feed guests visiting your home for the holidays.

Last wrap the turkey in cling wrap and let the rub and injection marinade do it's work! Let it set for 24 hours. ok, ok, if you are running out of time you can let it marinate for less than that. For the best results let marinate for 24 hours prior to frying,

I deep fried our Turkey using this recipe for rub and marinade. It was by far the best that I have ever made. And I am 67 yes. old and have made many, many turkeys in my time. Absolutely delicious and all agreed!!

Unbelievable outcome!! Followed to a tee and everyone commented that it was the best turkey they have ever had. Had professional chef at the table and was amazed at the flavor and moistness. Only hard part was regulating the temperature and clean up which I'll be better prepared next year. Even the turkey haters loved it!!

The bigger the bird the less oil will be in the pot (meaning it will heat up faster) + it also depends on the outside air temperature of where you live. You can plan about 20 minutes before it reaches a good temp to insert the turkey. Be sure not to wait until the oil reaches full temp.

I've read somewhere that it's best to leave the bird uncovered for the 24 hours to let the skin dry out a bit. You guys have it wrapped. Just want the skin crispy! Please let me know what the difference is. Thanks!

Instructions on how to debone and stuff a turkey are available, but what is the best way to close it up? A randomised trial involving 15 turkeys was performed in order to evaluate skin disruption scores and cosmetic outcomes following the use of different suture patterns. Turkeys were deboned, stuffed and cooked according to guidelines of the US Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Services. After stuffing, they were randomly assigned to one of five closure groups: simple continuous Lembert; simple continuous Cushing; simple continuous Utrecht; simple continuous; or staples. Turkeys were cooked at 180 C for two hours ensuring core temperature reached 75 C. Suture line integrity was evaluated after removal of the sutures and the cosmetic aspect was graded. Before cooking, the Utrecht pattern and skin staples offered the best cosmetic result. After removal of the sutures, the skin remained intact only in the stapled group. All other suture patterns disrupted the skin after removal of the sutures, rendering the turkey less cosmetically appealing for serving. Closure of a stuffed turkey was best performed using skin staples to achieve the best cosmetic results. Using this technique you will be able to impress family and friends at a Christmas dinner, and finally show them your surgical skills.

November is the best time of year to buy turkey on sale. You should easily find whole, frozen birds for less than $1 per pound, and some grocery stores will even offer a FREE turkey with purchases over a specific dollar amount, or when you buy your Christmas ham along with it.

Honestly the best way to do a turkey. I have tried a different recipe every year, from cook bags to coverings and brine. This was fairly effortless and just worked. Breast meat was moist and delicious, dark meat the same. Not much drippings for gravy due to the roasting, but that was quickly remedied.I would think this great for amateur cooks too as its easy to follow and execute.

I hosted Thanksgiving for the first time this year, first time making a turkey and everyone said it was the best turkey they had ever had. Better than brined, better than deep fried. I agree, it was the best turkey I ever tasted!Juicy and Full of flavor, yum! Saving this recipe for the future! Thank you!

Thank you so much Katie for this recipe! It was my first time cooking Thanksgiving dinner and your recipe was a HUGE success! Everyone loved it and was impressed. I will definitely be making turkeys with this recipe. With all the different recipes I searched yours was the best because of the full detail to brining and temperature. Thank you,thank you, thank you!!!

Lisa, I would use the convection roast setting. Use your probe (built in thermometer) and cook it until the turkey temperaturereaches 180. Then let it rest for 30 minutes. Do keep in mind, the convection settings cook faster than regular baking settings. Therefore, it might cook faster than 15 minutes a pound the way normal baking time would be. The best way to get an idea of how long to cook your turkey is look at the oven manual to get an idea how long to cook by pound. But that is truly just an estimate.

Not going to lie, even though it's September, I am ALREADY researching recipes to make my first ever turkey come November. I've heard so many stories where it's just gone terribly wrong and this was super helpful to get me jumpstarted!

Americans consume an estimated 22 million turkeys on Christmas. They also purchase an estimated 318 million pounds of ham around the holidays. A back-of-the-envelope calculation would suggest that turkeys, weighing in at an average of 15 pounds, are neck and neck with ham in total pounds consumed. To help break the impasse, TIME has arranged a perfectly scientific throwdown between the two Christmas staples. May the best protein win.

My husband and I made this stuffed turkey breast for Christmas dinner for our family. I have been making turkey for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas for over 50 years, and, although each meal was delicious, I have NEVER gotten rave reviews like I did this time. Even our not-so-fond-of-turkey son-in-law said it was good. Our teenage granddaughter proclaimed this is the only turkey she will eat in the future, and our daughters agreed that this was the best tasting turkey they ever had. I am convinced that the sausage stuffing was the game changer. I made the recipe exactly as was written with the exception of basting it a couple of times with a mix of butter and chicken broth . We could only get a three pound breast, but that only meant a bit more stuffing on the side. I assembled it the day before, and popped it in the oven 2 hours before serving time. It was cooked to perfection, juicy and oh-so-flavorful. By family demand, this will be our turkey recipe of choice in the future. Thank you for this incredible recipe. 041b061a72
