Plastic leg truss in my turkey
I have never cooked a turkey before but I was given a frozen, prebrined one a while back. I discovered this AM when I opened it up to remove giblets, that there is this plastic web thing embedded deep within the back, instructions are to use this to secure legs together during roasting. Roasting the plastic seemed like a bad idea but it clearly instructs to use this. I was planning to use the hi/low combined heat method as listed in recipe for "the Judy bird" but now wonder if the plastic should forgo the high heat and just do 325 as wrapper suggests. Or I can cut the silly thing out. I have volunteered this turkey for my sister's Easter buffet.
