Now THIS is how you cook a turkey

Be warned, it’s fancy.

FOR MOST OF us, cooking the Christmas turkey involves rubbing something on it, stuffing something in it, and bunging it in the oven.

Not for this guy though, this guy went Masterchef on it, cooking the meat Sous Vide (where the meat is sealed in an airtight bag and cooked in a water bath).

Redditor TheUnofficialDownvoteFairy posted his method for cooking the perfect turkey ahead of time, and it looks delicious…

turk1 Dark meat roulade with fresh herbs. Brined breast meat roulade. Breast tenders made into a roulade with no seasoning at all. Wings left alone. Used the carcass to make stock and gravy.

turk3 This was the breast roll

turk4 The dark meat roll and the wings being cooked sous vide

water All of the meat cooked and cooled and ready to take to my sister's house for Thanksgiving dinner.

turk5 Brought back up to low temp and then finished in a super hot oven. The tenders were lightly pan seared. The wings were finished on the grill with BBQ sauce
