2 Hour Turkey
Trust me. It really works! This method, developed by a local chef, results in a juicy delicious bird in 2 hours (well, 2-3 depending on the size of the bird) i'm posting this because my mom and sisters have done this for years but this is my first time hosting thanksgiving (yikes) and i don't want to loose the recipe before i use it.
Cut off skin at the neck.
Cut off wing and second joint.
Clean turkey and pat dry.
Salt and pepper inside and out.
Coat all over with oil , rubbing in a little to make sure you have a good coating.
Sprinkle generously with paprika.
Place turkey on its side in a large roaster.
Roast in a 400 degree oven for 2-3 hours.
3 / 4 of the way through the cooking time , turn turkey to the other side.
It is very important that you do not pierce the skin', just a hint: to ensure you don't pierce the skin and let out all the juice you might want to use a couple old oven mitts and just pick up the bird to flip it"]".
