The entire turkey was more tender and juicy than any I had tasted up to then. The gravy is something special, as well.

About Emeril's paper bag? That I have not heard of, but if it is soaked in wine and butter, it too may be special. My mother-in-law used to cover her turkey with brown paper, as I remember.
I have made a turkey with a butter soaked tea towel did not notice a great difference.

Yeah, yorkie - most of Emeril's recipes are on the Food Network site - go to Food Network : Healthy Recipe Collections, Party Ideas, Quick & Easy Recipes, Cooking Videos - happy searching!

Mom tried roasting the turkey in a brown paper bag one year - the turkey tasted like a brown paper bag ... ARRGH!!!
