Tips for a successful turkey dinner

Before cooking, tuck drumsticks under band of skin near tail, reset leg clamp or tie legs together with kitchen string. Twist wing tips up and under the bird's back. When ready to serve, put the breast on a cutting board and slice meat in even pieces. Carve with long, light strokes. Bearing down will shred meat rather than cutting it cleanly.
