How do you dress a turkey?

Should I cover my turkey with cheesecloth?
A great way to prevent the turkey breast from getting too dark and drying out is to use a soaked cheesecloth for the first half of the cook. If you choose to use woods with your turkey, the skin will darken but the cheesecloth will help protect it and give the skin a beautiful golden brown color.
Why is my turkey always dry?
Because dark meat has more connective tissues, it takes longer to break down, so if you cook the turkey whole, by time the legs and thighs are done, the breasts are overcooked and dry. After cooking, let the meat rest until it’s close to room temperature in order to let the juices redistribute.
Does stuffing a turkey keep it moist?
The stuffing is deep inside the turkey cavity and it takes a while for the oven’s heat to penetrate that far, so long in fact that you risk overcooking the breast meat. This helps make up for some of the flavor and moisture lost by cooking the stuffing outside of the turkey.
Should I put butter or oil on my turkey?
Don’t butter your bird Placing butter under the skin won’t make the meat juicier, though it might help the skin brown faster. However, butter is about 17 percent water, and it will make your bird splotchy, says López-Alt. Instead, rub the skin with vegetable oil before you roast.
Why are there no drippings from my turkey?
Problem: The turkey is dry and flavorless. After the turkey has been roasting 1-1/2 hours, begin basting the turkey with a hot stock flavored with wine and herbs (you won’t have any drippings yet). Once the bird begins to give off juices, use those drippings to brush the bird periodically, about every 30 minutes.
Should you rinse turkey before cooking?
Many consumers think that washing their turkey will remove bacteria and make it safer. However, it’s virtually impossible to wash bacteria off the bird. The only way to destroy bacteria on your turkey is to cook it to a safe minimum internal temperature of 165 °F as measured with a food thermometer.
What should you not wear in Turkey?
