Tinfoil Time

My Really Big Thanksgiving Turkey Drama continuation...

After a sleepless night and a timer going off really too early, we decided to let the turkey rest in the oven for a while and take him out of the brown bag, flip him over and tinfoil at a really low temperature.  

It looks soooo good.

One thing we did notice was that the skin was a little plasticy feeling.  Which is another reason to flip the bird over (we cooked it breast side down).

We flipped it over and managed to get it on tinfoil.  This was no easy task considering it was still juicy, slippery and, um, 47 pounds!

Back into the oven it went.  Note the coffee mug for a size reference.  It was either the mug or the bottle of wine...

Back into the stove at 170 degrees, just keeping it warm until carving time at 2:00.  Mind you, it was 10:30 am when we took this picture.
