Default My Thanksgiving Turkey

Admittedly not smoked, but brined and roasted. 20+ lbs took about 5 hours at 500 for 30 min and then 350 for 4.5 hours.

Hey, one nice thing about roasting...you don't have to worry about where the turkey fat goes!

Looks good!

I coat it with canola oil and the 500 degrees is just to give it a nice browning before slow cooking at at a lower temp. I use Alton Brown's recipe.

I made a crapload of gravy...I took the giblets and neck and made a turkey stock in my pressure cooker and then froze it to skim off the fat for the gravy.

Came out great.
