CHEF COMMENTS

Put garlic in bottom of roaster pan---sorry
usually in a roaster it takes less time.just keep cooking turkey until legs fall away from body.
i made this turkey 2 years in a row and my husband asks for it now he says it's the best he has ever had. My mother says I learned from the best even though i made this up myself. :0) The turkey turns out very juicy and the aroma is wonderful. hope you enjoy. i am going to make this turkey again this year and when i do i will take a picture of it and post it.if your turkey is too tall for your roaster lid to fit snug take some tin foil and form a new ridge arround edges of roaster to have lid fit. works great.
