It’s that time of year again. Shoveling snow out of driveways. Listening to people complain about how crowded the malls are while they do last minute Christmas shopping. And don’t forget all of the bad Christmas music that is constantly playing.
But you can’t forget about all the good things too. Getting a few weeks off of school. Getting to see family and loved ones. Visits from a certain jolly man dressed in red. And of course, the most important thing: eating gratuitous amounts of turkey!
I’m going to show you how to scientifically cook a turkey. Cooking really is just a science. Taking it stepwise and analyzing each part can really make your food turn out fantastic. You need to know what makes it up and how it actually cooks, then you can make a great turkey!
The first thing to do when trying to make the perfect turkey is, of course, going out and buying a turkey! Then you have to decide how you actually want to cook it.
