Were having our first thanksgiving at house this year.
I never made a turkey from start to finish. Any help with prep work is appreciated. I can always ask family members. but that kills the suprise if i need help cooking when Im inviting everyone for my food.
What i do know is:
*thaw for a few days.
*remove insides and wash thoroughly.
*set oven to 350*f
*stuff the bird with stuffing or veggies
*line roasting pan with either foil to wrap bird later, or coat pan with olive oil.
*baste every 15 - 20 min.
*cook for about 3 - 4 hrs until thickest part is 180* inside.
*remove cover to brown outside
* let sit for 15 - 20 min before carving.
seasonings are a personal preference so thats not a problem. But just getting the friggin thing set up is my issue.
