Best Turkey, Ever !

Did my turkey with a twist yesterday.  A brief summary

Injected turkey breast with Coconut oil

Stuffed with tangerines

Stablized Egg at 300

Bird put in on :Plate setter, legs up.  On a rack with a drip pan.  In the pan I put 1/.2 onion 1/.2. apple. 1 Carrot sliced. Celeray sliced and two cups of water.

Cover turkey with aluminum foil. (A 14 pound bird)

Cooked for four hours at 300F  Each hour basted bird with coconut oil.

After second hour added a handful of wet apple chips.

Breast temp was 168 on removal.  Let set for 30 minutes, carved and listened to all the guest rave about the food.

    You are correct. Just checked the Mayo Clinic for my diet and not a bad oil. Boy was I wrong.

    It was wrongly considered unhealthy by the dietary community for years and years.   I used to think the same.

    Pan fried chicken in oil is pretty good. It's a much different flavor profile than normal fried chicken.
