THAW the turkey in the fridge for two to three days prior to cooking.
PLACE it in a roasting pan with 2 cups of water and top with your favorite seasonings.
COVER with foil and place in a 300 degree oven for 3 to 4 hours.
UNCOVER and brown for 30-45 minutes in the oven.
NOTE: Cooking times will vary depending on the size of the turkey. The best way to ensure that any turkey is fully cooked is to use a thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook your turkey to 165-170 degrees and remove it from the oven, let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. The internal temperature will rise 10-15 degrees as it sits and you’ll find that your turkey will be more tender and juicy.
