1st time cooking my christmas turkey this year
only a small one...about 8lb
my oven has gas mark 1 up to 9 so i dont know what temprture each gas mark stands for.
every one has told me different things.
some say butter on the skin
some say butter under the skin
some say bacon
some say an apple in the middle to warm in inside out
some say stuffing in the middle
and others have told me stuffing under the skin not in the cavity.
so as you can imagen i dont know what to do with every one telling differnt things.
and how long do you cook an 8lb turkey and on what gas mark?
