    Hi Mrs.Bluedorn, we always buy “smoked” turkeys every year. We love them like that. We always get ours at a meat locker – I know you guys would like it.
    Lots of company sounds so much fun, hope you guys have a fun-filled Thanksgiving week!

    I’ve always used Reynold’s oven bags. The turkey turns out great every time and NO basting! Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

    I also am a very satisfied user of Reynold’s Turkey Bags. There’s also room in the bag for any stuffing that doesn’t fit into the bird. Mmmm! Getting hungry!

    Our family always uses sausage stuffing (just brown some bulk sausage and add it to your usual stuffing). It adds great flavor! I also like to brine it.

    We like sausage in the stuffing, too, and apple bits and mushrooms.
