I find that a lot of people think that holiday meals are more difficult to prepare than they actually are. As a consequence, too many people are nervous when trying to cook for the holidays. If you're new to cooking or just want to try something different, easy-to-understand instruction is hard to find when trying to cook the perfect turkey. Roasting is the most popular way to cook a whole turkey, and there are basically three turkey preparing techniques:
These are three distinctively different methods, but many times people are following a little bit of one and a little bit of another which leads to a poor cooking technique which often leads to a turkey that doesn't taste as good as it could. There are advantages and disadvantages to all three methods.
When done properly, this technique produces the most flavorful turkey. The high heat produces extensive browning and causes the meat to pick up the crispy skin flavor.
When this technique goes wrong, it really goes wrong. The cook must be watchful that the bird is pulled from the oven at the right time to avoid dryness. It's also messy. The pan drippings can splatter over the inside of the oven and burn, causing smoke and messy cleanup.
