Roasting a turkey at 500 degrees? (Read 12664 times)

I remember hearing a lady on a cooking show (I think on the radio) say she gets the best turkey by quick roasting it at 500 degrees. She said there is no better way to cook a moist, beautifully tanned turkey and that, yes, it cooks all the way through and in far less time.

Do any of you know anything about this or have you tried it?

I seriously doubt that you could roast a turkey at 500 and not end up wit hthe breast meat dried out by the time it was cooked through.

I have heard of starting the turkey at high heat like this, cooking it there for the first hour and then lowering the heat.

The theory behind that is to seal in the juices and then finish cooking at 375 or so to cook evenly, and not over cook the fragile breast meat.

Ah, I found it. It was an interview with Barbara Kafka I heard last year on the radio, around Thanksgiving.

If you're interested, here's a link to a recipe for her method. CNN has also published on Ms. Kafka's method as have several other sources. She claims she cooks a 15lb. unstuffed turkey in 2 hours.

Wish I knew someone who tried it before I decide to!

I think the show that you saw, didn't give the detail information
Roasting turkey in 500 degrees constantly isn't gonna make your roasted turkey taste good... Lips Sealed

I've never heard of anyone cooking a turkey at such a high temp the whole time either.

I do know if you cook it at higher heat it does hold in juices. Someone else said for 1 hour not sure how long but i know you have to watch it and then loer tempature to cook it all the way through.

I think you just roast it for a little while at 500 degrees. I do not see how you can cook it that high for any long time. I think it seals juices in if you cook at high heat for a little bit not cook it at that high until done.

500 seems a little to hot. Plus I dont think cooking at that degree is needed for roasting a turkey.

It could work. I know they deep fry turkeys and that is very hot and they are very juicy so it might be a good way to cook one.
