While Thanksgiving has come and gone, and my birth month has finally arrived, this recipe was just too good to deny front page status. While perusing Bon Appétit for some Thanksgiving menu ideas, my mom and I came across this technically wonderful cooking method. We did a test run on a couple of chickens, and when those turned out amazingly, we decided to take a risk and make our Thanksgiving turkey the same way. My oh my, did it pay off. Not only is the skin to die for (my favorite part!) but the meat was moist and oh-so-flavorful. If that wasn’t enough, the cooking time was about half of what it normally would have been. This is the first year that every scrap of leftover 15 lb. turkey was eaten – by two people and a dog. Try this out with your next big bird, or with a delicious chicken. You can’t go wrong.
