Our Best Thanksgiving Turkey Tips

Our Best Thanksgiving Turkey Tips

We’ve compiled our best turkey cooking and roasting tips to help you have a tasty Thanksgiving filled with lots of tender, juicy turkey.

Thanksgiving can sometimes be a stressful time if you feel nervous about how to cook your turkey. We’re here to help you decide on the best cooking method for your holiday and will walk you through how to get tender and juicy turkey that your family will love.

There are three methods to choose from: Foil Tent, Foil Wrap or Cooking Bag. We recommend that you place your turkey in a Reynolds Kitchens® Roasting Pan no matter which method you choose.

Foil Tent:

Keep your turkey from over-browning in the oven with a foil tent. To make the tent, crease a sheet of aluminum foil in the center, place over top of the turkey, and crimp the ends of the foil to the sides of the pan. After roasting, the tent will keep meats hot until serving time. Learn more details about the method here:

Foil Wrap:

Speed up your turkey cooking times without drying out your meal by wrapping it in foil. To wrap your turkey, line your pan with foil, place your turkey in the pan and season following your favorite recipe, wrap foil over the top of the turkey, and unwrap for the last 30 minutes of cooking to brown the turkey.

Oven Bag:

Cooking your holiday turkey in an oven bag will help to infuse the flavors and keep the meat moist. Learn more details about the method here:
