Default Alron Brown's Turkey at 151 degrees

Hey, did anyone see Alton Brown on a Holiday Special last night doing his Turkey to 151 degrees in the breast then resting. He said he got the breast to 170 on the resting time but does this sound doaable? Are you going to get 19 degrees during the resting time?
Seems like from what I've seen here that his bird might be under-done.

I rarely get more than 5 degree rise during resting. If I wrap it and cooler it , I may get a little more, but just tented on the kitchen counter I don't get near that much.

i missed the holiday special, but on his show about turkey a few years ago, i thought he went to 161. Maybe i am wrong though. I don;t think i have ever gotten 19 degrees carry-over though.

It seems that 19 degrees is a bit much for me. But I really dont like the idea of bloody turkey, but he IS a professional so he MUST know what he is talking about....right?

I normally take mine to 155 and it will rise to 165, but I agree, 19 degrees is a bit much.

I had a cocktail while I was watching and may have heard wrong but pretty sure he said 151 and not 161 because I remember being so surprised it was so low.

Here is an Alton Brown turkey recipe where he says take it to 161 degrees. I bet you misheard.

Makes sense...my wife says I mishear her all the time.
I'm gonna go with RonL and take this year's bird to between 155-160.

I watched the show last night. He said 151. I did a double take to make sure I heard right. He even said it a couple of times. He said it went up to 170 but I still find it very hard to believe to get a 19 degree increase especially just setting on the counter with a single thickenss of foil over it.

So it wasn't the booze! I thought that's what I heard. I'm not going to try one at 151.
How about that stuffing they made with the sausage and sourdough bread...man that looked good.
