So this year the turkey was my job so I decided to switch it up a little. This year I was making a bacon wrapped turkey.
First I put the turkey in a brine. This brine consists of water, juice of 3 lemons, some salt and some maple syrup in a five gallon bucket. I soaked the turkey in there for 24 hours before I started.
The night before Thanksgiving I took the turkey out of the brine and dried it off. I stuffed it with onions celery and carrots. For the bacon I weaved 2 bacon weaves and put them in the freezer for 20 min.
When I took out the bacon I rubbed it with a mixture I made by whipping 1 stick butter and 1/4 cup maple syrup together.
Then butter side down I layed 1 bacon weave on the back of the Turkey. Then I flipped it over and layed the bacon on on the front side.
