Tips on cooking a turkey properly

Dean_UK | Oct 6, 2012 07:36 PM

After my last post about how to cook pork loin (turned out awesome!), I am back looking for advice on how to cook a pretty small turkey for my wife and I.

I want something moist and flavorful and was wondering if anyone has any tips. Since my last post I have invested in one of those meat thermometers that goes inside your oven and can be read on the outside so any advice on what temperatures and what prep to do would be great.

I don't often have the chance to cook but I have a day off soon and the wife fancied a turkey dinner. The turkey is only 8lbs so it's not exactly big. Thanks in advance :)
