Tips on how to cook a Red Bird turkey for Thanksgiving.

The Right Size Bird

You can plan on anywhere from ½-1 pound to person. If you really want a lot of leftovers, and have hearty eaters then plan on a generous 1 ½ pounds per person.  Chef's tip: buy two small turkeys instead of a large one...two birds give you the option to cook with different styles! Also, a good brine can go a long way.

Roasting a Turkey -Tips from a-z

1.      Heat the oven to 325 degrees farenheight. Remove neck and giblits. These may be used to prepare turkey and stuffing.

2.     The plastic leg clamp may be left on during cooking.

3.     Place turkey on rack in shallow pan (see below for brine tips), breast side up, and loosely covered with foil. Remove foil after one hour of cooking.

4.     Roast until timer pops up and turkey is fully cooked, 180 degrees farenheight internal temperature as measured by a meat thermometer. Insert thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh. Always confirm temperature with a thermometer. Juices should run clear.

5.     Let turkey stand at least 20 minutes before serving.

6.     For optimal safety, cook turkey and stuffing separately. If desired, add fully cooked stuffing to cooked turkey just prior to serving.Decide if you want to Brine, Rub, or BasteTurkey
