I know what you’re thinking: Cooking a turkey in a paper bag sounds crazy… I know, right? Well I have tried this myself and I can personally tell you that your turkey will turn out with crispy golden skin on the outside and juicy and succulent on the inside. The paper bag will not start on fire and the turkey will not have any paper like taste. You will not have to baste it our anything. Basically as Ron “Ronco” Popeil says “just set it and forget it”. This is super easy with almost guaranteed success every time. But, we are going to mix it up a little by adding a sweet and salty savory rub. This rub will seal the juices and flavors in and deliver a unique and delicious bird. Your guests will do back flips or just smile with delight.
