start/stop a roasting turkey?

sanglier | Mar 11, 2011 10:34 AM

Sorry to be such a pain on here, but I've never roasted a turkey and don't want to mess it up! I read brining was a good idea but I've just been too busy to fool with it, bird's been in the fridge and has been defrosted for a few days, so I need to cook it soon!

This may sound goofy, but since it takes a while to roast it, has anyone started the process, then gone to bed, put it in the fridge, and resumed cooking it in the morning? Or is that a ridiculous proposal that would lead to a ruined turkey?

I'd like to begin tonite and finish tomorrow rather than cook it for hours on Saturday, but if I must I must.
