Crock Pot Turkey (A whole turkey)
I thought I'd do this so those of you who want an easy way to do their Thanksgiving Turkey can use this method.
NOTE: It is recommended with this recipe that you put the dry rub or herbs on your turkey 24 hours before cooking to let the flavours get into the meat. Maybe even put some inside the cavity. If you use a bouquet garni that would be great for inside the turkey as well. You can also stuff this turkey if you wish. Some of the stuffing might leak into the pot but that would probably just add to the flavour.
- turkey or vegetable stock
- 1-9.5 lb.
- turkey, fresh is best
- olive oil
- dry rub or mixed herbs (see below)
AND REMEMBER TO START EARLY IN THE MORNING ON HIGH IF IT'S A BIG BIRD. CHECK THE TEMPERATURE PERIODICALLY WITH A MEAT THERMOMETER. 180'F IS YOUR GOAL TEMPERATURE. IF THIS IS DONE FASTER THEN ANTICIPATED JUST PUT ON LOW OR BUFFET SETTING IF YOU HAVE ONE.
