newbie: 21 lb heritage turky--high heat method

mayitaville | Nov 24, 2010 07:04 AM

I'm jumping in the deep end.

I've never cooked a turkey before, largely because I can't stand the corporate overbred variety. So this time I got an organic etc. heritage turkey, but it only came in the 21 pound size.

The question: I want to do the high-heat method (as per the 1996 NYT recipe here: http://www.nytimes.com/1996/11/27/gar...).

Is this workable at 21 pounds, or will it not cook evenly? Any other tips?

Thanks,
M.
