never had a problem with that.

I don't stuff... I truss the legs slightly above the cavity opening to allow the heat in... I use a digital thermometer in the thickest part of the breast, and cook at 325 degrees until the breast reaches 160 degrees... then out of the oven, cover loosly with foil, throw a dish towel or two over it, and let the internal teemp rise to 168-170 degrees (new USDA recommendations are for min. of 165 degrees across the board, no more diff temps for breast and thigh).

Been doing it this way for 20 years, never ****ed it up once.

Now 21 years without a ****ed up bird.

Damn, I'm good ;)

bah... skin is horrid when cooked in a bag....




I usually brine, stuff, then cook at 375...


Spray it down with "can't believe it's not butter" which makes delicious crispy skin. :thumbs:

cooked at 325 and basted with beer. the best.

325 out of a bag doesn't give proper skin, In the bag I cant imagine it anything but rubbery.. Do you take it out to crisp the skin or anything?

yes, it does. just uncover it the last hour. and it's always very juicy. NO BAGS! rub olive oil on the skin before i roast it, salt and pepper, use onion and celery inside, and baste frequently with beer (1 bottle).....makes awesome, rich gravy. cook at 325, 15 minutes per pound.
