The verdict

I took the bird out of the oven at the 2:20 mark. If I hadn't spent the first half of that time cooking it covered, it might have cooked a wee bit faster. In any case, call it two hours or so.

The verdict: outstanding! Everything was cooked through, all the meat was equally moist, and the flavor was out of this world. The rosemary was very good; indeed, it could have stood a LOT more rosemary. I will remember that when we cook this in quant. suff. next month. The veggies were wonderful. Zach particularly liked the apples.

All in all, a very successful attempt! We are stuffed. A Merry Christmas to all the world.
