When my husband and I were newly married in the 60's and away from home for our first Thanksgiving I had not idea how to start a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. David Wade's cooking show came on TV and I took notes on how to cook my first Thanksgiving turkey. I have used this wonderful receipe each and every Thanksgiving for 45 years. Everyone raves about the moist and delightful brown turkey. Easy!!! Cooking time 10 minutes per pound - really!!!!! Use a 12 pound or larger turkey. Do not subsitute the peanut oil.
