F.Y.I.  I use an oven bag when making my turkey and last year I poured in a bottle of Riesling, seasoned and baked as normal.  That was the moistest turkey and the best gravy that I ever mad

F.Y.I.  I use an oven bag when making my turkey and last year I poured in a bottle of Riesling, seasoned and baked as normal.  That was the moistest turkey and the best gravy that I ever made.  And it did NOT taste like Riesling was simply delicious!

Alcohol cooks off and most leave no taste.  I always butter the inside of the bird and just cover with foil. All this talk, I can taste those pounds adding up already...

I just usually make the bird the regular way,  seasoned and stuffed.   Boring sometimes but everybody loves it and the house smells so great while it's in the oven!

Two years ago I started brining my turkey and have found it's the moistest (is that a word?) turkey ever. I was afraid it would taste too salty but it doesn't. I use a frozen turkey and it works well.

I'm going to brine my turkey this year.I have been experimenting with brine on all my meats and the results have been great,moist and tender,not salty at all.I'm brining pork chops for tomorrow night's dinner,then I'm going to bread with panko bread crumbs and pan fry.

I guess my way is the usual way, but I put stuffing inside the bird, spray the outside with buttery spray and cover it wioth foil.  Then at the lasr\t I remove the foil so it can brown.  It turns out great!

I would say that my way is the most usual way.  I do stuff the bird with the stuffing and spray the outside with buttery spray and cover with foil.  When almost done I remove the foil and let the bird brown.  I also cook it slower that the  temperature recommended.

I have given up cooking "whole" birds.  Too many things go wrong, not including stuff inside or the thing not cooking enough :(

I usually do the traditional stuffed bird.  Once the kids left home, I continued to make the full meal, then prepare TV dinners from the leftovers.  When you start out with homemade, the TV dinners are great!  Also, the turkeys are on sale, so I might as well buy a big one, since I'm going to put that much work into fixing a Thanksgiving meal.  We get to be thankful for numerous meals this way.  Actually, we're thankful each meal, but you know what I mean.

I make it the usual way, in the pan, covered with foil, remove the foil to brown it.  Don't stuff it any longer.  Bake the stuffing separately.

Mary I have started brining some of the different meats that I prepare with great results.This year I plan on doing my turkey in brine before cooking and I am expecting the same results.Everything is so moist and tender when done in this fashion.

Thatpretty  much howI've been doing it  since we became empty nesters.
In New England" stuffing" cooked outside the bird is called"dressing' It's great; no worry about  packing it into the bird@ 6AM or it not being cooked enough.To give hebird  a similar flavor,I rub he  washed/insidew/butter or oill & sprinkle it w/ poultry seasoning
