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)

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 prowl for newbie fluff! Try me with what you have! Also looking for NB MUTT's and GMD Workhorse fitteds orange and yellows!
