Speedy Convection-Roasted Thanksgiving Turkey
September 29, 2022
It might be hard to believe that you can roast a whole turkey in under an hour but the impossible becomes possible in the Anova Precision Oven.
Although this recipe is great anytime of the year, it is particularly useful during the holiday season when oven space is a hot commodity. Since the turkey roasts so quickly, it will help to free up precious oven space to make room to cook other holiday dishes. I keep the turkey simple with just salt, pepper, and a touch of oil, but feel free to add your favorite flavors to make it your own–fill the cavity with citrus, herbs, or other aromatics, rub spices into the skin right before the turkey gets roasted, or brush plain or flavored butter onto the turkey after it comes out of the oven.
This recipe does take some pre-planning since it tastes best when the turkey is dry-brined for at least 24 hours (and up to 3 days), but all of that time is completely hands-off.
