13. The Best Roast Turkey

After 34 years of roasting turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, I’ve tried pretty much everything.  I’ve bought turkeys that were fresh, frozen, kosher, pre-brined, self-basting, young, organic, big, small. You name it–I’ve tried it. I’ve brined, basted, not basted, cooked the whole bird in a bag, stuffed, unstuffed, dry rubbed–always in pursuit of the perfect roast turkey.
