Tips for brining and baking turkey

1. Be sure you have a roasting pan or a disposable pan available!

2. Be prepared to move items from the fridge to the super-cooler in order to put turkey, stuffing, etc. in fridge. Make ice!

3. Cooking the turkey while other dishes are also cooking or staying warm (potatoes, stuffing, etc) will slow the cooking time quite a bit.

4. Be sure the oven rack is set low enough so the turkey can fit into the oven!

5. Cook the turkey until the thickest part of it is 160-165 degrees.
