T (Thanksgiving) Minus 10 and counting…

A new cooking method for the turkey has been sent in by Linda, La Reine du Barbecue, from LJ’s BBQ in Pawtucket, RI. It does sound intriguing. It calls for wrapping up the turkey in foil and baking it at 450 degrees. What do you think?

From Linda:
I expect you will get an avalanche of turkey recipes, but I am SOLD on this method. I have continued ever on and it produces consistently the best ever turkey with moist (yes!) white meat and the foil removed at the end for browning and curb appeal.. Because it is cooked at high heat and less time, you also aren’t a slave to the thing. The only tricky part is that it can be so moist that upon transfer to platter at the end it can literally fall apart(legs from body), but you were only going to have to cut it up anyway to serve it, so who cares!

Happy T-Day dahlink!!!
