This turkey was really great! The seasoning penetrated the meat very nicely, and the bird was super juicy. We made two birds this year so I am getting a lot of mileage from the turkey! I made the soup froim this issue this afternoon and am simmering the stock for the mole recipe now.
I did use the carcass to make the turkey stock last night. I simmered it for six hours--wow it is strongly flavored! I got enough stock to do the soup and mole recipes plus another quart for the freezer.
