Barra Bronzes christmas turkey cooktimes!

Did you know that our turkeys cook in half the time of a standard turkey? Due to the maturity of our turkeys, they have impressive marbling which ensures that our turkeys cook in lightning speed times. You do not have to add butter or bacon as our turkeys naturally baste themselves in the oven. When you cut through your Barra Bronze, you will cut through our crispy delightful crackling and into the meat. The meat will be seeping in delicious juices. There could not be a simpler masterpiece for the Xmas table.

  1. Lovely tasty moist turkey. Brined overnight as usual and my traditional cooking time (sorry, but too much of an experiment to cook for your recommended 1hr 55 mins even if just the two of us this year). The thermometer thingy only popped up a few minutes before my time was up so I felt vindicated! Lovely juicy bird anyway. Now to be even more inventive to use the rest before the carcass becomes stock.

  2. we really like the idea of having a Barra bronze turkey crown this xmas but there are only 4 of us.What is the smallest size you do?we will need your famous cranberry sauce.rRr
