The star of Thanksgiving dinner is the traditional roast turkey. Like it or not, this classic dish will be talked about until next Thanksgiving rolls around. Bed Bath & Beyond carries the roasting pans and racks to help you pull of roasting a turkey even if this is your first time. Whether you stuff, spatchcock or cut up the turkey before roasting, you will find any of our turkey roasters with a roaster rack especially useful. How does a roaster rack help? The roaster rack lifts the turkey up from the pan’s direct heat and allows hot air to circulate underneath for even cooking. What is the best way to roast a turkey? There are many ways to roast a juicy turkey and how you prepare the turkey depends on your preference. Some prefer to remove the packet from the cavity, wash it, brine it and roast it with basting at regular intervals. Some like to brine it and stuff the cavity, wrap it in cheesecloth and baste it regularly. More adventurous cooks like to spatchcock the turkey, season it and place it open breast side down on a roaster rack. This roasting method is much faster. A 12-16 lb. turkey would roast in 60-90 mins. How do you know the turkey is done? Whatever roasting method you choose, an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
