I did this for the first time last year. Came out great, but I made one mistake....When doing the ice bag on the breast, make sure you pull the turkey out of the fridge and let it warm up on the counter slightly before putting the ice bag on.I pulled the turkey out and slapped the ice bags on right away and did not get enough temperature variation between the breasts and the rest of the bird. I think you want about a 20 degree difference, so if your ice and breast is close to 34 degrees, the rest of the bird should be higher before you put the bag on to get that separation.
I caught this too - and I have a followup question:1) How long do you have the turkey in the oven uncovered to dry out? Is overnight sufficient?2) How long would you have to let the turkey come up to temp before icing? 30 minutes? 60 minutes?Looking forward to trying something new!
I am going to do my first turkey using the Naked Whiz/Mad Max method. Any suggestions for this first-timer with this method not outlined on his site? Also, any feedback on how good I might expect this to come out would be great.
@js9375, Why the double drip pan set up?
And, for what its worth, I always stick the probe in halfway through the cook.
But its all good. Have a few of the ole nasty and all will be well in eggland
