Has anyone ever tried this Cook's Illustrated turkey recipe
? It purports to cook a 12-14 lb bird in two hours. I'm a bit skeptical.

I have a 14 lb 'brined young turkey' from Trader Joe's sitting in my fridge and I have been looking for some new yet simple ways to prepare it for Thanksgiving.
I tend to trust Cook's Illustrated but....I mean, it usually takes about 1.5 hours for me to roast a 4 lb chicken at 375. How the heck is a 14 lb turkey gonna cook in two hours at 400?
