How I Cook My Turkey
By Wayne, Meat & Seafood Manager
Brining your turkey helps it retain water
The helmet method helps keep in that moisture from brining during cooking
Cover the turkey breast with foil and follow the cooking times included with your turkey. If your oven’s big enough, then put the turkey in legs-first because the fatty dark meat can handle more heat. If not, cook it sideways and rotate it halfway through.
Important: One hour before the turkey is finished, take the foil (the helmet) off!
Check the temperature of the turkey with a digital thermometer. When the breast reaches 161° and the thighs and drumsticks are between 170° and 172°, take the turkey out. Put some foil over the turkey, but just sort of scrunch it over the top (wrapping it all the way around will cause the skin to get soggy.)
Finally, just let it sit like that for 20 to 30 minutes. It will continue to cook about 5° more, and give you time to prep your sides before dinner is served.
