Ideally, at the time of baking the temperatures never exceed 200 ° c since this will cause accelerated dehydration and dry the meat faster, the baking time should not exceed the hour for each kilo of meat, that is, if your turkey weighs 2 kilos, the baking time should be less than 2 hours. The best way to know that the meat is ready, is through the skin, once the crust is completely golden, it means that the turkey is perfectly cooked inside, to protect it and better concentrate the heat, you can cover it with a part of aluminum foil or cover the tray or baking container with a heat-resistant lid. Tips to keep the meat juicy: Wash the turkey well: prior to baking, what is recommended is to clean it internally with cold water, removing visors and trifles alike and letting it rest at least 1 1/2 hours before cooking it so that it dries perfectly. You can also leave it marinating on wine and some sauce or abundant concentrate, as is the case with some sauces, since they are keeping the meat hydrated while it rests and evaporation will be less at the time of baking. Bake it in a tray or deep container, so you can store the juices at the time it is inside the oven, in this way it will continue to hydrate despite being in the heat of cooking. Varnish with butter to keep the surface moist and to acquire an even browning at the time of receiving the heat from above.
