Having only started eating poultry again maybe 3 years ago after a 15 year absence, I'm fairly new at preparing turkey dinner. However, I've done it a half dozen times since then, including each thanksgiving and christmas. This year was different.
BRINE YOUR FUCKING TURKEY!!
Seriously, my turkey went from not bad to unbelievable. Wonderfully spiced, tender, and juicy. Do this if you don't already.
Next, cook it less. I put the thing into a 500 oven for 30 minutes, crisped the skin, then turned it down. Whole thing done in 2 hours and evenly cooked.

We've been brining for years with great results. This year we did a new technique along with the brining - spatchcocking the turkey. Worked really well for us with our small (I believe 14lb) bird, but if we got a bigger one not sure it would have fit.

Mike Lenin: It comes across as contrived that you don't know the plight of Annie. You're playing coy

Mike Lenin: you posted in the mildville gazette forum right before posting this shoutbox. I can't believe that you would make this comment AFTER reading the Gazette. Please. It's normal behavior economics to read the Gazette then post. This makes you suspect.

Buzzfly: Ya whatever. As I said vote how you want, nothing is going to change how you think. Frankly, its getting to be a waste of time.

Buzzfly: You must be really bored

Mike Lenin: And yeah, I'm open minded to new ideas when they fit. Earlier I had shouted at you that I'm willing to accept that you could be a hero

Mike Lenin: boring people get bored
May 11, 2020 20:24:02 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: and definitely not sober

Buzzfly: Well that I can drink too

Mike Lenin: And yeah, for the record, tl;dr you accused me of playing the game, and to boot, to that, correctly, in identifying you as a villain. So despite it being clear that we are playing for different teams, I'm still down to share a drink with you

Buzzfly: Take another drink, you will need it when you find out youre wrong
