Re: help with turkey
You don't have to baste. Just be sure you add a little flour to your bag and shake it before adding the bird. I do get a really nice crunchy skin on mine using the bag and it results in a more flavorful bird IMHO (we eat a lot of turkey as a chicken is too small for our family. I have 8 in the freezer right now,lol)

And if the parts aren't in a bag inside can't I just leave them there?
I do pull out the giblets and neck because the thought of cooking them with the bird grosses me out for some reason. I use teh broth to make gravy and I don't want the neck and giblet juices in it (though giblet gravy is said to be wonderful!)
On the hunt for smallish wool! Knit or interlock
