Many people think that roasting a turkey means throwing some salt and pepper on the outside, maybe brushing it with a little melted butter, and putting it an oven for a few hours. While there’s nothing terribly wrong with this approach, the result is often a boring and dry bird. If you’re looking for a new method to cook a terrific Roast Turkey, or if you’ve never roasted a turkey before and need some direction, then I have a great recipe for you.
To make a basic Roast Turkey recipe, all you have to do is season the bird well, places it in your roasting pan and roast in the oven for the required amount of time, basting the bird occasionally with butter, broth, wine, or a mix of all three. Some basic roast turkey recipes will change up the seasonings a bit or play with the cooking time or temperature, but the holiday turkey really can be that simple. Turkey is such a healthy meat that it’s wonderful to have any time of year– just not necessarily a whole bird.
The Smoked Turkey in this recipe can be used just as you would for chopped or pulled pork barbecue, as sandwiches, or with your favorite barbecue side dish.

The key to this recipe is to inject the turkey with apple juice, or a mixture of apple juice and various spices.
There are some guidelines for getting a perfectly Smoked Turkey: ensure that there is no wind, as this could put out the fire; don’t open the smoker’s door too many times or for too long; smaller birds less than 15 lbs are better since larger ones take too long to smoke; thaw a frozen turkey thoroughly before smoking it; ensure that the temperature is at least 160 degrees, to destroy any bacteria effectively.

When cooking Thanksgiving Turkey, the best way to cook is with an electric roaster. It’s less expensive than a range, safer than gas, and creates less heat than either of the other methods. Cooking with an electric or gas range, many people use a cooking bag to help tenderize the turkey. With an electric roaster you don’t need the bag, although you can use one.
Thanksgiving dinner without the turkey is just like spending Thanksgiving without the prayer. It is generally not a difficult task to go for a turkey preparation but very few people are really good at cooking up delicious turkey preparations. Cooking Thanksgiving Turkey in a roaster allows you to use the range, saving time. Happy Thanksgiving!

The turkey meat, skin, and fat is taken off the bone and processed with additives. The final product has specific characteristics that appeal to customers, including a non-pink color and non-crumbly texture. The composition of ground turkey is driven by market demand, availability, and meat prices.
