    Sandy B 44's Note:

    The turkey comes out moist and golden - with no effort on your part. Slow-roasting keeps the juices in. It is nearly impossible to over-bake, because the temperature is so low. The secret is NOT basting or salting. Basting or salting draws out moisture and dries out the turkey. IMPORTANT: Plan ahead: Thaw turkey in refrigerator for 1 day per 4-5 lbs, (For faster thawing, you could thaw in cold water. Change the water frequently.) Allow 1 hour per lb + 1 hour to cook - i.e. total: 21 hours for 20-lb turkey.

      Best turkey ever! I've been cooking turkeys this way for over 10 years now and there is no comparison if you want a moist, tender turkey! Turn the oven to a higher temp at the end for a nice brown color, but it's not necessary if you just slice and serve.
