How do you cook your Thanksgiving day turkey?
Do you grill? Keep it simple in the oven? Deep fry? Throw on some cajun spice? Have something more creative than what I already mentioned? I'm curious!
I always use a cooking bag. I toss that sucker in the bag after rubbing it with butter, salt and pepper, then put it in the oven around midnight. Cook it on 250 and it's done when I wake up. This year I used a cooker I got for Christmas one year and added Cajun Injector (Creole Butter). mmmmm
FRY IT - it never dries out. You don't have to put anything on it. Magnifique!!
Smoked turkey is our favorite--mesquite wood mixed with fresh cut apple wood.
I wash drain and spray my bird with butter spray to get golden I use a roasting pan although the bag does make it delicious, the stuffing doesn't work out with the bag for me and that is my favorite. I baste it a few times, baking at 350 and it is always fall apart tender.
I make homemade cornbread dressing with a ton of sage, onions and celery and stuff my turkey, rub with butter and sprinkle with creole seasoning...cover with foil and roast in a 350 degree until almost done uncovering it for the last 30 minutes to brown....when the legs are pulling away from the body...its done! Carve and enjoy!
This year I don't I have been the family Thanksgiving "turkey," for as long as I can remember but since my Mom passed it just hasn't been the same. This year my husband and I ordered a complete dinner-it may be lousy but being able to kick back and truly enjoy the holiday with only a re-heat involved is like an early Christmas gift.
This year we have three turkeys, the first is heavily butter and lightly seasoned with garlic and herbs. The second is buttered and lightly seasoned with McCormicks seasoning and covered with barbaque sauce. The third turkey is heavily buttered and covered in Montreal steak seasoning with worchtershire sauce in the bottom to moistened the turkey!
I layer strips of bacon over my turkey and cover with buttered tinfoil; 30 minutes before it's ready I take off the foil to crisp the skin and the bacon. You should see how quick the crispy bacon disappears. None of it ever makes it to the dinning table. The turkey always turns out really tender and moist
My wife and I usually get our turkey the day or two before we cook it. We usually get it frozen, also we leave it overnight in a pan of water to thaw out. We prepare the bird with a sprinkling of pepper and salt. Put the conventional oven on 375 degrees and start cooking Thanksgiving Day about 6 or 6;30 A.M. and cook for about 5 hours turning the bird in the oven. We use a cooking bag in which to bake the turkey that seals in flavor, juices, and cooks it very thoroughly. We stick a fork in the meat to test after a few hours, and see that it is well cooked and remove it for about 20 to 30 minutes before we place it on the table. Sometimes we go ahead and slice the breast meat into smaller slices and put this on a plate separately; We prepare our dressing(stuffing) separately using corn bread, eggs, celery, olive oil, farm stuffing mix and onions.This is the best treat for me about dinner and I usually east more dressing than anything else.
