    CaliLily you can freeze your broth if you don't use it all. For small amounts, I have frozen the broth in ice cube trays. For larger amounts I use freezer bags. The foil tent works good and it helps to baste the turkey while its cooking. The turkey skin always get dark on mine.

    Thanks for the tips! I come from a family of vegetarians so they aren't much help with cooking unless it is meatless tacos (not a joke).

    I have officially wreaked havoc on my kitchen and will be scraping bits of turkey off the celing for days... It tastes good but the breast is a little dry ahh well... what can ya do?

    I had fun surfing the food network website in between attemts to carve the sucker. I found a great recipe on the site for turkey enchaladas! YUM!

    Cooking a turkey for the first time is always scary. But I'm sure your turkey was fine. Sometimes... you just get a turkey that will cook dry, it has nothing to do with how you cook it. Congradulations

    So, let me get this right.....Cali's turkey exploded?
    I'm interpreting "celing" as "ceiling".

    prhoshay-They still make Tab. It can be hard to find so I limit myself to one a day! A few years ago they stopped selling it in my area, I called and they had had so many request that they brought it back. My family was very happy. Don't mess with mom til she's had her TAB.

    Lol... no, it didn't explode... I just had a few minor mishaps with the carving/ using the fork as a catapult

    Was it a whole turkey or was it a turkey breast?
    If it was a turkey breast only, that is more apt to be on dry side. It's not as juicy as a whole bird, so it tends to be dry.

    It was a 17lb whole bird. My employer gave us all a free coupon for one at Christmas time and it was going to expire at the end of this month. Not something I will ever do again- I'm all for KFC!!!
