Come to my house--my turkey is never dry! I cook it upside down (so turkey breast on the bottom), until the last 30 mins. Flipping it over is sometimes kind of tricky, but my guests are always amazed at how moist the white meat is.
We have turkey for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, but as I'm a Yankee abroad, Thanksgiving is still a bit of a curiousity/novelty for my in-laws. My hubby has dubbed it 'PCD' (Practice Christmas Dinner), but no matter how 'foreign' T-day might be to them, my in-laws still show up. I'm cooking for 14 this year.
