Turkey Experiment

Getting ready for thanksgiving and I thought I would do a turkey trial run this weekend to make sure everything is going to work out okay.
Thanks to someone (don't remember who it was), that posted the picture of the turkey with the two lemon halves slide underneath the breast skin, it gave me an idea.
I have read through madmaxes recipe and thought of an alternative to the ice sitting on the breast for 20 minutes before the cook. Tonight I am going to cut a lemon in half and stick it into the freeezer, tomorrow I'll slide them under the skin just like in the picture and see if this has the same effect as icing the breast down, plus maybe add some flavor in the process. I figure within 30 minutes or so of cooking the lemon will thaw and hopefully (fingers crossed), make the breast and thighs done at the same time.
If it works I am gonna call it the Double D Cup Turkey recipe.
