This is my first year having thanksgiving at our house and I am brining my turkey using Alton Brown's recipe from the foodnetwork. It comes highly recommended by some friends and the reviews on their website speak volumes!
Anyway, I bought a huge slow cooker that I want to use, but I don't know if it will work. According to Alton's recipe, I am going to bake the turkey at 500* for 30 minutes and then I plan on transfering the bird to my slow cooker. I've read what you all have to say about baking uncovered, but in a slow cooker, that wouldn't work. Should I cook it with the lid on, or make a lid of tin foil? I was really excited
to use the slow cooker (which goes up to 450*, so technically it's probably not really a slow cooker, but that's what it looks like), because it will free up the oven for cooking the rolls and yams. Do you have any ideas???
