Should you cover a turkey with foil?
The shape of turkeys doesn’t lend itself well to even cooking, especially if you’re not spatchcocking the bird. Aluminum foil can help you get a more uniformly burnished bird.
If you see the breast parts starting to brown too much, cover them loosely with foil to keep them from burning before the rest of the bird cooks.
You can also cover your turkey once it’s out of the oven and resting, but again a loose tent is key: A tight covering can create steam.
