2 hours resting after cooking sounds very classy, but do you heat it up again before you serve it??

Is there a real recipe for this? I think the vid is really good but I always like to use some written text as an extra guideline. Thanks?

Super video, but you put the meat thermometer in but don't say anything about the temperature you're trying to achieve – as far as I could tell? Could you enlarge on that please??

I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE Jamie! No words, just emotions!!!

The question is: 2 hours resting, it gets cold, how do we warm it up again??

Can't tell you how many people I've taught to roast a turkey. It's the easiest meal to feed a crowd. I actually do this thing though where I mix olive oil, spices, lemon juice together and pulverize it into a pesto and rub that underneath the skin (between the skin and the meat) so it has more staying power. I place herbs in the cavity too. I include lavender generally…because I like it. Also, I roast at 500 for about 15 minutes at the outset and then turn the temp down. Will try your version though!?

Big bad Jamie, You have to get stuck into the bush oven for roasting on the open fire or heat beads. It is amazing. The meat just falls off the bone and the flavours permeate not only the meat but the nostrils of the invites. Great when you have family or friends over. A few beers or wine while the meat is cooking on an open fire outside, it is heaven on earth. Check out the Hilly Billy oven made in OZ for the best of the best camp ovens (no I don't work for them). Always love your work… Read more »

Thank you Jamie, I've made a cracker of a roast turkey Christmas day, even though I thought the stuffing had far too many favors, well guess what…..it's turned just like your turkey. I'm so happy, beautiful & moist, beautiful color & a fantastic taste. Cheers mate…..you really are amazing, I'II never doubt you again.???

Don't trust this recipe. Timings are way off. Three hours the bird has been in oven, and still not done. Almost ruined our day.?

Delicious Jamie – time to tuck in! For years I have also been roasting my bird upside down. Keeps the breast meat remarkably moist. All that's needed is a deeper trivet base of veggies; easy-peasy. Works every time.?
