Stand Alone Electric Roaster for turkey

amazinc | Nov 5, 2012 05:13 AM

I have one of those (like my grandmother's) and am hoping to use it for roasting a 12-15 pound turkey. Has anyone else tried this? I'm lugging the roaster to my sister's house so I'd like to have
some idea of what I should look for in cooking time, does it brown the bird, & whether the process
will dry the meat out (more than usual, I mean) You can probably tell that turkey is not my favorite
so I'm not too good at cooking it. I've read a thousand articles on how to get it moist, yet brown and none of them have ever worked for me. The bird will be at my sister's so I can't brine it and she doesn't have space or the inclination to do so. I don't have time to search the board, so if I'm duplicating a request, please direct me to the thread. Thanks to all 'hounds for help.
