Default Re: Thanksgiving turkey question

My "trendy" wood-fired oven cookbook has a recipe where you fire the oven up to roasting temp the day of, keep a fire going, and slip the turkey in. I have tried it a few times and loved it. Comes out really brown, has a smokey flavor, and is very juicy. Problem is it requires you to turn the turkey around every half hour or so. You have to pay attention. And do work. Not my favorite things on holidays. But it is delicious!
This year I am fireing up the night before, leaving the door ajar so I can cook the pies in the a.m. at around 425. Then I will light a small fire and cook the turkey. We'll see.
Happy Thanksgiving.
