Today is Christmas Eve Day 2020 and we woke up with -3 F. In addition snow and wind started yesterday afternoon. Looks like a perfect day to stay in and roast a turkey.
As a matter of fact, my wife and I prepared the turkey early this morning and put it in the oven. The raw turkey came in at 24 lbs. It had giblets and a bag of liquid for basting.
