I'm normally not a blind follower. I'm painfully skeptical. Except when it comes to anything Michael Ruhlman says. It's kinda like that game "Simon Says," only with cooking. And if Ruhlman says to do it, then damn it, I'll at least try it (sorry, the skeptic still talking).
So here it is for Thanksgiving (pull out your frozen bird, y'all; good for you if you got a fresh bird...not start brining) -- the best way to cook a turkey. Sounds logical and delicious to me.
