    My stove has broil option and it's either High or low? Bake is other option. So I'm using broil. I started on High, but after 30 minutes started burning top of turkey so I switched to low broil not sure if this will help, hopefully. I added small cover of foil on top. Also the mix to put on turkey right before I put in oven, was not pastey but slightly liquidy.

      1 ToLiveThroughIt 10 months ago

      I didn't use a rack but with all the moisture and bacon it came out just perfect! The juice was used for gravy and it's the best gravy ever! Might even make caramelized onion gravy with the extra juice tomorrow! 🤤

    This has got to be the best turkey EVER! Wish I could reach in and get a big bite. It’s just me so I won’t be fixing a turkey. But I’m sure going to fix this recipe with chicken breasts and pork roast and center cut ribs in the crock pot with the bacon and all the rest of the fixens. Thank you sooo much for that. GOD bless you and your family. Always treasure your family because time goes fast. Don’t blink or it will be gone. I’m not trying to be glum but it’s true. I’m going to tell others about this recipe. Awesome. 🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗

    Just a quick question Claudia did you cook the turkey covered or uncovered, and basting the turkey was every 30min or every 30min after cooking halfway?

    • I be strokin'

    • Cooking With Claudia
      Cooking With Claudia  10 months ago +1

      I cooked it uncovered. The bacon acts as a cover so you don't have to cover it. Baste every 30 mins after cooking halfway

    A trick for everyone when cooking your turkey, flip the Turkey upside down and cook it on its breasts. All the natural juice from the Turkey will come out in your pan. Doing it like this you wont have to use chicken stock in the pan. Then all that Turkey stock can be used in the dressing and for making gravy.
    Grandma taught me that trick. You can't beat it.

    • Old Fashion Mommy
      Old Fashion Mommy 10 months ago +2

      This is so true. I cook ours upside down every year. And this one year that i didnt my turkey is NOT the same . Its not near as tender or juicy. Im so mad. I knew i should had cooked it upside down just like i always have.😤😤😤😤😤😤

    • Ibn Muhammad
      Ibn Muhammad 10 months ago

      Actually flipping the turkey upside down in a roasting pan during half the cooking process doesn't make the breast juicy because the juices flow down but because the high sides of the pan will shield the breast and allow the breast to gently cook while the dark meat is more exposed to the heat and cook faster as the dark meat need to hit a higher temp than the white meat. Some juices will come out naturally and less if you brined it, because when salt penetrates meat, the meat won't contract as much as if it were not brined; allowing more juices to stay in the turkey. The turkey can till be overcooked even if you brine it so always use a thermometer and get the temp in between 150 and 165, 155 degrees is a perfect temp for turkey. Also remember to let the turkey rest for at least 30 minutes.
