How to Make Turkey Edible

Chipotle Turkey

I hate turkey because it is so dry..I have been trying to convert my family to prime rib for special occasions, but they insist on Turkey.

So, if you must, here is the only way to roast a decent turkey:

Directions for an Upside-Down Turkey:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Rinse turkey and remove giblets. Place turkey upside (breast) down in a roasting pan. Insert 1/4 cup butter inside the turkey. Place remaining butter in several pieces around the turkey. Pour water into the pan. (Stuff it if you like).
  3. Cook covered in the preheated oven 3 to 3 1/2 hours until the internal temperature of the thigh has reached 180 degrees F (80 degrees C).

For the last 30-45 minutes, just turn it over… you’ll have a turkey that tastes like chicken.

    One word for you when it comes to Christmas fowl:


    Tasty, moist, crispy skin you can actually die for and you can eat duck from rare to well done…..

    Duck beats out turkey 10 times out of 10. I have a duck defrosting in the fridge right now. Christmas day supper is going to be just amazing….

    But if you insist on turkey – brine it for 12 to 24 hrs. Even the worst kitchen spazz is going to have a hard time drying out a brined turkey.
