6:26 am
it is kinds of down home and it is like their mother or grandmother used to make. bun one of -- but one of the biggest things that people don't realize is letting your turkey rest. you have your turkey and now everybody wants to eat and take it out of the oven and let's cut it and go. and you should let your turkey rest for 20 minutes or so-so your juices stay intake and then cut it and then your juices are moist. >> and you don't want turkey fatigue. that is not good. >> you don't want that. and that goes into my next thing here. dry that somewhat a lot of people end up having. but sometimes they don't mind, with the grave, it might be okay but there are some ways that you could keep that bird pretty tender and juicy. >> sure. like i said, when it comes out, let it rest. but some foil over top. and i generally say, for a normalle sized turkey about, 20 minutes or so. so put some foil on top and let it keep the heat and let the juices stay in the bird. and then once you do that, you can start cutting it and that way your juices stay intact.
