When we roast chicken we turn them and roast each side at high heat for a few minutes, then lower the heat for the final cooking. This is the Julia Child technique and it lends itself to turkey too. It helps keep the bird from drying out on top and stewing on the bottom. Use a rack too.

And here was the result!


It turned out great!! Not too dry, and it taste very good! Thanks to everyone for great tips and advice, it really helped me.

Dave, I didn't brine it as I didn't have the needed remedies, but I will certainly try that some time!

Thanks again and happy new year to everyone!

Looks good! As long as it wasn't dry. I cannot stand dry turkey. It used to not be that way. But as with pork, turkey has been engineered over the years to remove the fat...and therefore the flavor and juiciness.

Great looking bird, Svein. I didn't know you had posted a picture until I read your other post. Glad to hear the christening went well. I'm sure it would be torture to leave your son, but I don't know that I could have given up the sea. Guess it's a good thing I don't have to make that choice.

Well, the maritime industry in Norway is booming at the time, so there are a lot of interesting jobs ashore for deck officers.
I'll never regret my time at sea, but for me it was time to move on after some 10 years.

I really loved my job on the NCL ships but since we got paid in USD and the exchange rate dropped more than 30 % in one year I could not go on.

After I left NCL until I stopped sailing I was on a shuttle tanker in the North Sea, and that life, especially at winter time, is far from glamourous
