Nothing makes it smell more like Thanksgiving than a turkey roasting in the oven. There a few rules of thumb to insure a moist and delicious outcome. Fresh is always better than frozen but if you do choose frozen make sure you allow enough time to defrost completely in the refrigerator. Another important factor is a pan large enough to roast your turkey. We always recommend a meat thermometor and roast till 165 degrees but a good time measure is 14 minutes per pound of turkey. We have given you a recipe for a kicked up glaze for your Thanksgiving turkey. Hope everyone enjoys this unique twist for holiday.
