We have never roasted a Turkey. Actually, I am not sure either of us have ever even helped someone else roast a Turkey and therefore we had no idea what we were doing. We hadnt even planned on doing a Turkey. Turkeys are not real plentiful and while we like it, for us it is not necessary for a Thanksgiving dinner. But, a friend had grown some Turkeys and asked us if we wanted to buy one for Thanksgiving. We decided to get a Turkey. Come to find out, it was a $100 turkey! So, we took our golden 17 pounds of Turkey goodness, did a few google searches, and dove into the process. The results are below. We took the turkey to a dinner on Saturday night with a bunch of friends. It was a nice addition to a night of sweet food and fellowship.
