Turkey tip

I made a beautiful 21 pound turkey the other day for a gathering of friends. I got a great tip from my 1st edition "Joy of Cooking." Instead of covering the turkey with tin foil, melt animal fat (lard, bacon grease) and dip cheese cloth in it. Cover the turkey with the cheese cloth and baste every half hour with pan juices or more fat as needed. Bake in a slow oven at 300 degrees. It was amazing. Happy Holidays.
