If you have ever fought crime with me you know that I have a unique list of sayings when describing something. I mean a corn dish that I tried this past summer wasn’t just good it was “Slap yo Momma Good!” My super hero TonyB has a list that are even better than mine such as my favorite “It is walk across a street filled with broken glass barefoot to go eat there!” when he was talking about a popular Chicago hot dog joint. Well we can now add another one to the CBT arsenal as if something is ‘that’ good and you tried a virgin recipe on a major holiday un-tested it is “You called Central America on the phone to thank them for the recipe!”
I will post the recipe at the bottom and trust me it is “that easy” as Cindy told it to me last Turkey day when I was cooking the chickens for the “BBQ Sauce off” down in Belize. By the way hey Ruthie who won that contest again?
Take a white t-shirt and cut a big enough piece to fit over the entire top of the turkey. Melt four gallons (ok maybe not) of butter and dip the t-shirt into the butter. Place it on top of the turkey. (you can put a stalk of celery, an orange, or stuffing inside the turkey if you want)
Baste the t-shirt every 1/2 hour with some of your four gallons of butter. take the t-shirt off the last half hour to brown the top.

Didn’t you tell me about cooking the Turkey with a T-shirt? If so can you tell me again as I have forgotten and if not no I have not stated drinking (yet)!
