Turkey Tips from Cut Rite Meats

Here are some favourite Turkey Tips from our own resident Cut Rite Meats foodie who knows a lot about Turkeys.


You’ve probably seen this in Gordon Ramsay videos. Loads of butter and herbs can be stuffed UNDER THE SKIN, basting the turkey meat from the inside as well. Fat is flavor, and butter fat is fabulous where turkey is involved. It’s pretty easy, just stretch out the skin and separate it from the meat, and then put the butter in the new cavity. I’ll let Ramsay show how it’s done.

Now any one of these will do wonders to ensure a moist turkey. I’ve done all THREE at the same time, though there is ONE more method that I haven’t yet done with my own turkeys, but I have enjoyed with other friends….


This method just breaks down that bird slowly much like when slow cooking a brisket or beautiful piece of Rump Roast.


  • cook a 12–16 pound bird (larger birds than that is a little trickier to time) at 200 F / 93 C for 10–12 HOURS.

  • After that, you’ll up the temperature to 375 F/ 190 C for 30–40 minutes to brown the skin.

  • You’ll need to time this right, and give the turkey a good 30 minutes afterwards just to rest.

One thing I like to do when I cook my turkey is I put a layer of bacon on top (so the bacon fat bastes the outer skin) for the first half of the time on my own birds, and then remove it for the second half.

In this slow cook method, I can see it benefiting the bird as well as that rich bacon fat would help with the browning, so long as the bacon is removed during that last browning heat method.

Try any one or a combination or even all 3 plus the slow cooking. You’ll get one heck of a tender bird.


I still like to stuff my turkey, But I only add a small portion inside instead of really stuffing it full. Instead, I also add:

Add lots of healthy and nutritious vegetables when you make your turkey stuffing to add to the amazing and succulent Cut Rite Meats turkey flavour.
  • 2 whole Green Onions;

  • 1 Onion, Quartered

  • 2 stalks Celery, Halved

  • 1 branch of Rosemary

  • 1 carrot, halved

The beauty of doing this is that as the turkey cooks, those veggies will release a flavorful water vapor that will penetrate the meat from the inside out. It adds loads of extra flavor and moisture.
