Hello all of my fellow cookers and bakers!!!!

I personally will be making many turkeys this year and I'm looking for new ideas. So, I'm hoping that you guys can suggest your favorite way to cook turkey no matter how traditional or crazy you think your way is. I also have a roaster that I was given as a wedding present three years ago and have yet to use, so if any of you have any ideas with that I'm open to them as well. :)

Hope you had a great October, now let the holiday cooking and baking swing into full force. :) Happy cooking!
