Samesies.Well the spouse looked on the internet and went no-baste. Finished early since we never opened the oven.
Doing my 12 lb bird tomorrow, what oven temp did you go with?Samesies.
Checked at 2.5 hours (11 lb bird), and it was 180*. Had planned on pulling at 165*.
And that was with basting at T-1.5
Reviews were still great.

Only thing that flopped was the gratin.
Partially precooked last night, in theory required another 30-40 minutes today.
It’s spent at least 6 hours in the oven and it’s still hard.
I think I’m supposed to call my doctor at this point.

I kept the tray of dark meat in the kitchen because the table was so crowded and asked what people wanted and brought the other pieces in to them. Conveniently didn’t mention the leg was still there. 🤪How do you still have a drum stick? Mine were grabbed before I even got to sit down at the table.
