This is a few days late, but this turkey recipe turned out awesome, so I need to remember it!
Started defrosting Sunday morning. Made brine Tuesday. Started brining Wed night.
Q: Did you constantly baste this?
A: No! It got that color by cooking at 500 for the first 30 min.
Q: Did you cover it in brown sugar?
A: No! Sprayed with Canola Oil PAM spray. It got that color by cooking at 500 for 30 min :)
Q: By "500" do you mean broiling?
A: Not sure? By 500 I mean I set the oven to 500?
Q: I don't believe it!
A: Believe it!

After 30 min at 500
Put foil hat and thermometer on
After another few hours at 350 - meat temp 161 degrees
The key is to NEVER open the oven.
Remember: Never open the oven. Basting is verboten for this reason!

Not gross! It looks so yummy
