Better your Turkey
A little turkey tip: Instead of cooking the entire turkey all together, cook the legs and breast separately. Cooking the breast at 145° and then the legs at 165°, will ensure that the turkey doesn’t dry out! realsimple.com/holidays

A way to add more flavor to your turkey is to inject it with butter or apple juice. “It adds moisture and help penetrate down into the meat.” You can also use a delicious glaze. “Combine 3 tablespoons of butter, 1⁄4 cup bourbon and 1/2 cup of maple syrup in a pot over a side burner on low heat.” (Kevin Kolman) weber.com
