    Sure. Use a Reynolds oven bag and follow the instructions, put butter all over and in slits beneath the skin, and make your stuffing separately (not inside the bird). Also, make sure you get it out of the roaster as soon as the red button pops up.

    Dont forget to take the birds out back and pepper them with a 410 so you can punk your anti gun friends by telling them you hunted them up ; )

    Good point Buzz, maybe he IS one of my brothers!

    Hey GWII - do you have any brothers you've owed money to since Reagan was President?

    Ingredients
    1 (14 to 16 pound) frozen young turkey

    For the brine:
    1 cup kosher salt
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    1 gallon vegetable stock
    1 tablespoon black peppercorns
    1 1/2 teaspoons allspice berries
    1 1/2 teaspoons chopped candied ginger
    1 gallon heavily iced water

    For the aromatics:
    1 red apple, sliced
    1/2 onion, sliced
    1 cinnamon stick
    1 cup water
    4 sprigs rosemary
    6 leaves sage
    Canola oil
    Directions
    Click here to see how it's done.

    2 to 3 days before roasting:

    Begin thawing the turkey in the refrigerator or in a cooler kept at 38 degrees F.

    Combine the vegetable stock, salt, brown sugar, peppercorns, allspice berries, and candied ginger in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally to dissolve solids and bring to a boil. Then remove the brine from the heat, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate.

    Early on the day or the night before you'd like to eat:

    Combine the brine, water and ice in the 5-gallon bucket. Place the thawed turkey (with innards removed) breast side down in brine. If necessary, weigh down the bird to ensure it is fully immersed, cover, and refrigerate or set in cool area for 8 to 16 hours, turning the bird once half way through brining
    Remember they are not hard to hit just easy to miss.

    Sorry Gary I don't. Besides I'm so poor I can't even pay attention, but I don't owe anybody anything.FYI my sig on name is not GW11 it is GWII. It just comes out on some fonts looking like 1"s Mine are the roman numerals for 2.

    I only have one brother. He's in Minnisota and a Good Packer Fan.

    I have two nesco Roasters and they do a wonderful job on a roast or a Turkey. I just salt & pepper them and baste with butter

    OK, I looked up Nesco roasters. Is this an electric cooker that can also be put into the oven? Or is it a standalone cooker? How does it work?

    It's basically a mini oven. I use one on Christmas and Thanksgiving to roast a big ham out in the garage and keep my main oven in the kitchen open for the turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, etc. It's fine for roasting a turkey too. A 28 pounder might be pushing capacity though. That bad boy must have gotten more than his share of the steroids, LOL.

    So it sounds like it would be perfect for cooking and serving pork shoulders or piles of baby backs.

    Well,a lady at the market told my wife to use Sprite or seven up to baste it in.Now I was using an outdoor grill,but I'm sure it'll work in a Nesco.Pour soda over turkey,go back every so often and dip it from bottom of pan and pour over turkey a couple times.It was the MOSt Moist turkey I ever ate.I usually stay away from the white meat because it's always so dry.Not the case when you use Sprite as your basting solution.Just as moist as all the rest of the turkey.I'm sold on this recipe,I'll never do a turkey without sprite or seven-up over it.

    I use a charbroil big easy oiless fryer.You might have one come out as good as mine but it cannot be better. Perfect crispy golden brown skin ALL THE WAY AROUND.after resting when carving the juice just runs out of the meat. I use Alton Browns brine recipe ,perfect every time ,safe-no oil,and it frees up the oven for other things. Jeff
