  • I have a tip for you for an amazing bird...put it in the oven tonight before you go to bed at 150 degrees. Jack it up to 200 degrees tomorrow morning and leave it like that till about an hour or two before it's read to serve and bring it up to brown. Also, don't forget to look in on it every hour or so and baste it with it's own juices. This will guarantee you will have the most amazing bird.
