Every Time I Do Research on Cooking The Thanksgiving Dinner

I always think of this collection of scenes from ‘The West Wing’ when I’m researching ways to cook the bird each year. You know, I may just call the Butterball Hotline this year. This year, I want to use the convection roast feature on our convection ovenĀ instead of the convection bake option. I’ve only discovered the use of the convection roast feature a few months ago and I’m amazed at how well things are turning out. However, just about everything I’ve found directs me to convection bake instructions instead of convection roast.

      Even though I’ve owned a convection over for ten years, it was only this year that I started to use the “convection roast” feature, as opposed to “convection bake”. I used the convection roast a few times on chicken breasts and it was the best I ever cooked, so I thought I’d try it with the turkey this year. I also thought I’d give the Butterball hotline a call on using this feature, but after waiting for someone for twenty minutes the night before, I hung up. Sadly, my bird wasn’t very good – white meat was overcooked and some of the bird wasn’t cooked all the way. I probably should have used the Alton Brown method of putting tin foil over the breast to shield it from some heat. I’ve had a bad run with my turkey recently, probably because I’m experimenting two much, but then again, I gues that’s part of the fun.
