This recipr worked wonders!! My turkey came out tender and literally falling off of the bone. Everyone loved it, I will prepare my turkey like this all the time now. Only one suggestion, add the time to put the turkey in the oven. I finished cooking mine at 3 in the morning and opened it up at 10 in the morning. Worked good for me (20lb. turkey).

I tried this with a 20lb. turkey. Very easy recipe, and tasted wonderful BUT.... WE HAD 10 SICK PEOPLE THAT EVENING. I used my electirc probe, never opened the door, but we got sick. I knew to be careful with this method of cooking, and should have followed my gut. (no pun intnended)

I've never tried this, but have read that, even if the turkey reaches a safe internal temperature while it's cooking, it should not be at room temperature that long after it's cooked. Just passing along what I read!!! Don't want anybody to get sick!!!
