Uncle Willie's Roast Turkey

"My uncle Willie would make this turkey every time we visited him. While the turkey was roasting he would sing and dance for us. We could not wait for the turkey to come out of the oven."

    Amazing Recipe! if you Brine the turkey 24 hours before seasoning it gives you a more Moist and Flavorful turkey!

    Uncle Willie sure knew what he was talking about! This was delicious! I also brined the turkey with another recipe and we wound up putting the orange under the turkey skin since we used stuffing but it was AWESOME! Thanks so much for posting! We will be using it every Thanksgiving.

    I used this method of roasting my turkey, after brining with the recipe from "Good Eats" roast turkey (somewhere on zaar). I added a cinnamon stick to the oranges that were stuffed in the turkey's cavity. All I can say is that this year's turkey is the absolute best one that I've ever made before!
