how did you cook it ?? and how did it come out??

what brand was it and would you buy the same next year?

while fresh in our memories, this will be good reading for all of us, and a great reference for next yr



we had a jennie-o .59lb turkey and it was delicious- we lost power
so we simmered it in water in an outside propane cooker
it came out great!!

Mine was a Jennio (20 lb)....it was great! Roasted it, made tons of juice for gravy...excellent! $.59 per lb. Food Lion. I don't pay much attention to "brand"...a turkey is a turkey..it's what you DO with it that's important! I've use this brand many times....and other brands.....I just cook a great turkey!

You typed .59 pound turkey--half a pound? I guess you mean a 59 pound turkey? That's huge! I would have put it on the gas grill, the Weber or the wood burning fireplace.

My friend gave me a turkey on Wednesday. I'm pretty sure Tom got to run around, eat bugs and generally have a good time before the big day.

Got an organic one from Costco, brined it and roasted away, came out great. In the bottom of the roasting pan I put onions, jalapeños and mushrooms, the gravy came out great with a nice spicy kick.

I bought a Butterball this year instead of our usual Riverside. It was very juicy and I liked the way it had a flap of skin cut to hold the drumsticks instead of the plastic or metal piece in the Riverside ones.

I didn't do anything special to the turkey this year but we all agreed this was the best turkey we've had.

Used an electric fryer, worked excellent. Tender & juicy.
