Can a turkey be wrapped in foil to cook it?
It can, but the turkey will probably not be very tasty. By wrapping the bird in foil, you will end up steaming it instead of roasting it; the latter method, which involves exposing the turkey to the direct heat of the oven, will bring out the most flavor in the meat. Some people put a "tent" of aluminum foil over the bird for the first hour or so of cooking, to prevent the skin from becoming too dark. In addition, you can use foil to line the roasting pan to keep it clean.
Your turkey will cook more evenly and faster if you start it out at room temperature so remove the turkey from the refrigerator 1 hour before roasting. If you plan to stuff your turkey, wait until you're ready to put it in the oven before putting the stuffing in the turkey.
