    starre421's Note:

    I hate my oven being taken up on thanksgiving! Plus it just seems so difficult to try to keep a turkey from drying out. I developed a recipe where I can slow cook a turkey in a roaster pan where it comes out so flavorful, juicy and tender you don't even need a knife to cut it. The best part is, the turkey is prepped a few days before thanksgiving and it starts cooking the night before! Leaving you to be able to take care of everything else you need to do that day, instead of worrying about the turkey. Know I wanted to try sharing it with others so maybe they can enjoy it as well.
