We did Thanksgiving dinner here for the first time. Mmm! The turkey was delicious. The recipe came from here. One of the big tricks with this recipe is to cook the recipe breast-side down so that when the juices run down the turkey, they collect in the breast making for very juicy and delicious white meat.
The only panic moment was when I took the turkey’s temperature an hour before it was supposed to be completed. The turkey was done already, and I hadn’t started any of the other food yet. I just covered the turkey and let it sit for an hour while I prepared the rest of the food. The turkey was luckily still warm when it dinner was served.
