I rub heaps of butter all over it, then cover it with streaky bacon in a lattice pattern. Then cook for 2 hours covered in tin foil, then the last 30 mins or however long is left I uncover it so the bacon crisps up.

We have a whole turkey and I drown brine it for 24hrs before cooking it. It doesn't dry out when cooking and tastes lovely. (Nigella recipe)

Upside down for moister breast.

I feel like that deserves a Sid James cackle or something smile

Was going to follow Jamie this year but my turkey has come with the recommendation to cook without foil. Don't think I'm brace enough though. Has anyone ever done that?

I always get up early - turn oven on high and give turkey half an hour blast, then turn it down to 100 degrees and let it slow cook till evening. Wrapped in foil of course to keep the juices and the steam in. This method both roasts and steams so it is always moist and succulent. I do all meat like this.

Important with turkey to check the juices are clear before serving.

Or you can do this overnight if you are having Christmas grub at lunchtime.

I find turning it upside down just squishes it and the skin sticks to the pan. It's not then very appealing when you right it. I could be doing something wrong though whenever I've tried it, but from an aesthetic perspective it never looks good when I've tried it.🙄

Put the butter under the skin, you need to release the skin first by sticking your fingers in so there is pouches for the butter to be added.
