For Keeping a Roasted Turkey Moist, Let it Rest

Stop! Don't carve that bird yet. Although it is perfectly golden brown and the meat thermometer says it is done, even the most perfectly roasted turkey can turn out dry if it is carved too soon. Use a separate instant read meat thermometer to check the temperature in the turkey thigh and breast, to ensure that your oven thermostat is working correctly. One little known secret for keeping turkey moist and juicy is to let it rest for 15-20 minutes after removing it from the oven. During the cooking process, as the fat melts, the meat proteins in the turkey contract forcing the juices out of the meat, towards the cavity of the bird. Baste the turkey with butter/margarine and pan drippings every 30 minutes during oven cooking. Keep the temperature low, set oven to 250 and the bird covered with foil until the last 15 to 30 minutes, this is to brown the skin only. A good rule of thumb is to roast for about 15 minutes per pound. When the internal temperature reaches 165 F on a quick read meat thermometer. Your turkey is done! Carving the bird too soon can cause a sudden rush of juices from the bird, resulting in dry meat. Resting your turkey evenly distributes the heat, and allows the meat proteins to 'relax.' As a result, much of the moisture is redistributed and reabsorbed into the meat. Once you remove the turkey from the oven, cover it loosely with foil and let it stand. Since some cooking continues even after the turkey is removed from the oven, it will not get cold right away. Plus, the extra time it takes to rest your bird provides the perfect opportunity for you to do some quick clean up and finish your gravy and side dishes. After you spend the time to cook the turkey, you will need to properly keep it warm and moist or it can dry out. If you do not allow the juices to distribute throughout the turkey before you carve it, you can end up with meat that lacks flavor and tastes dry. So wait 15-20 minutes, call the family down to the dinner table and get ready to indulge into a moist roasted turkey. Now that the hard part is over, just carve, serve, and enjoy a moist, roasted turkey that will have your whole family coming back for more!
