Graniteware is part of our holiday tradition
on December 10, 2017
My family has used graniteware roasters for as long as I can remember, and I never thought I'd be able to find one for my own family. I began to panic, because this year would be my first time hosting Thanksgiving in my own home; I wouldn't be cooking in someone else's kitchen or using their things. And I really wanted to make a "fall-off-the-bone" tender Turkey.
Thank goodness for Amazon saving the day.
I forgot that using graniteware roasters dramatically decrease the cooking time. I had purchased a 16 pound turkey, and expected it to take maybe 3.5 to 4 hours. This beauty was done in 2.5 to 3 hours without a need to baste at all. Even though my meat thermometer said that the internal temp of the breast and thighs were 160, I removed the lid and put the bird back in to crisp up the skin just a little bit more. The meat was practically falling off the bones when we carved the turkey, and I seriously couldn't be happier. I didn't think it'd be so amazing that my family ate the entire thing! I should have bought a 25lbs bird to have some leftovers, and clearly it would have fit in the roaster!
I'm even more excited for Christmas when I use it for our ham!
