Got a 14 pounder for dinner tonight at 4:00.

Just getting started.

Steph bought a pre injected bird so no brine or other injection. I admit I'm a little nervous that this one wont turn out as good as last year....

Sorry...I tried posting from my phone and all I got was the freakin URLs...!

Here we go!

Bill, don't worry if the thigh portion is higher on internal temperature than the breast portion. The thigh is full on connective tissue that renders out when it cooks. So you should be good. Plus gravy is your friend for hiding dry meat.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The bird was perfect. Moist and juicy all the way through.

Gorgeous turkey!!  As I was reading your post, I was thinking it was a bonus that the legs got to a higher IT than the breast. Glad to hear it worked out!!
