In-laws coming over for Thanksgiving where YOU have to roast the turkey for the first time? Nervous and jittery are you? Not to worry! Just follow these detailed instructions and you'll fly by! The only thing is, your mother-in-law might get jealous because you produced a much better turkey than she ever did. *.* This is an equally good and easy recipe for veteran cooks too -- delicious, tender, VERY juicy, and super eye appeal. It took me several years to hone the details of this recipe but, now, I'm pleased with the final result and I think I'll stay with this one for awhile. Cooking time does NOT include the brining process so give yourself 12-24 hours for this if you can, although you CAN skip the brining if you're pressed for time. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! And serve your bird with Crock Pot Holiday Dressing
