Sous Vide turkey breast and thighs for 24 hours at 135F with butter, sage, onion, celery and a drizzle of cognac.

Use the drippings in a pan gravy to ladle over dressing and mashed potatoes.

Add a few traditional sides and your Thanksgiving dinner will become a feast that you will be truly grateful for.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79283367


Most people can't do this.

Too late use Alton Browns brine recipe. But that's the best way.

You let it drain and put that bird on carrots, celery and onion, all chopped.

Tent that bird after you slather mayonnaise on the skin and stuff the bird with rosemary thyme and whole lemons.

Use a thermogenesis in a leg to know when that bird is close and 1/2 an hour before temp.

Pull that aluminum off and that skin will be crispy as fuck.

The meat? Like filet mignon.

You are a welcome.
 Quoting: Dr. Pickle16


Alton Brown's recipe is the best. I've done catering for 1000s for years on Thanksgiving and everyone loves the way it comes out.

My turkey is brining as we speak.
 Quoting: LuckyBolt


Mine, too--Alton's method.

We just wash it well, pat dry, sage, garlic/onion powder, salt and pepper inside and out. Then put a stick of real butter in the cavity and another stick to baste with. Basting after an hour or so and then every 30 minutes. Moist and great tasting.

Oh and we always tent till the last 30 minutes so it browns up.

After de-boning the carcass I combine all the less-than-desirable trimmings, left-over gravy and chopped veggies with cooked rice, then form into patties and freeze for doggie food. Muffin trays work well, too.

I'm sure someone will say it is unhealthy but I've been doing this for years and my dogs have survived. Anyway, they've been known to dine on worse things.

Use a Cajun Injector, inject with creole butter.

On the breast side butter between the turkey breast and the skin.

Use an oven bag, take the bag off the last 15 minutes of baking to brown the skin. With an oven bag it will retain the moisture, cook faster, and there is no need for basting. Make sure you cut holes in the bag and add a tablespoon of flour inside the bag to keep it from bursting.

Enjoy!

Re: GLP Turkey Secrets and Recipes
I like to brine my poultry overnight and too do that you need to make a simple brine which is usually just water, salt and sugar, quantities are recipe dependent.

Optional extras, spices, herbs, booze, vinegar, your choice on what you like, loads of recipes out there and it does make a huge difference on the flavour, enjoy GLP.

Re: GLP Turkey Secrets and Recipes
it's a good idea to get your turkey PCR tested at 40 cycles /second

make sure it's not positive..

contact trace if needed

cook 14 days later after quarantine..


only then and only then can we be safe from covid.

Dry brining for 2-3 days, then 200F overnight, covered. Remove foil, finish at 450F to crisp skin. The skin is like glass after that. Crispiest you will ever have.

For the best, most delicious bird your family has ever had... use a goose not a turkey!

The best I've ever made I used fresh Rosemary and dried apricots that I soaked in turkey broth. The turkey was the best flavor and the gravy from the drippings was legendary. The flavor was memorable!

Re: GLP Turkey Secrets and Recipes
I am trying slow cooked turkey for the first time but supposedly this was the way our grandma's did it.

275 for one hour and then 200 for 8-9 hours. You can overcook it up to 180 degrees and then let it rest at least an hour before carving but you are safe to take it out at 160 in the thickest part of the thigh. I plan to go 180 and let it rest. Supposedly the meat will seize and relax creating an even more tender meat that way.

I did not stuff it though some say you can. I am doing it breast side down with flavored butter inside and out and will flip it at the end and crank it back to 300 for the last hour uncovered cuz I love crispy skin. Geez I hope I am right... I really want a good turkey!

You still have time to do this is you eat later.

Also a teaspoon of sugar in your mashed potatoes (just barely a smidge) will greatly improve them although I don't think mashed potatoes need much improvement.

Gravy - now I could eat gravy like soup. Don't get me started.

Now I love me some gravy... I've already started my bird but I am going to pressure steep some fresh rosemary and apricots in chicken broth right now to make the gravy with the pan drippings.

Thank you!

Yes anytime I make a whole chicken I make broth out of the carcass and scavenge the bits and pieces with leftover veg and do this. I put it in ice cube trays. The broth I use for us humans but I've been known to give it to them too if I can't get to freezing or canning it. They love it.

I also give them raw meat when I trim. Vet said it's good for them as long as I'm fairly sure of the quality and freshness of my raw meat. My animals have never gotten sick and I've had a lab last for 22 years!

Grandma did, mom did I have been for 30 years and never got sick and the breast is not overcooked/dry despite what anti stuffers say.
For shits and giggles take a few handfuls of your dressing and turn it into stuffing by putting it in the cavity of the bird.

Make your normal casserole of dressing. Taste each side by side = you will never go back to dressing ever again.

Re: GLP Turkey Secrets and Recipes
Spatchcock your turkey. A 12 lb. turkey cooks in only 1.5-2 hours.

Dry brine it a day before cooking. (Make gravy separate (or buy it) as drippings will be salty).
 Quoting: RoyRoj


I always use the fat from the pan mixed with flour but chicken broth for the thinning. I've found that way I get superb turkey flavor without too much of the seasoning from the coating. Thanks to my new friend above I'm gonna try to flavor the broth this year with apricots and rosemary. But just to be safe I'll do a new batch and same old batch! There's always enough fat and I love love love gravy. It's the only time of the year I eat it so it's like my holiday crack. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are my gravy holidays. 😋

Where are you from? I'm wondering if this isn't one of those localized treasures like Old Bay for the Mid-Atlantic.

I've introduced old bay to so many of my Texan friends. That missing something something is the celery seed. Just adding celery seed (not salt) to alot of things really make it pop, coleslaw being the first that cime to mind. Oh and adding it to a dry rub for pork.
