    One year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my sister's house for
    the traditional feast.
    Knowing how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to play a trick.

    She told my sister that she needed something from the store.

    When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven,
    removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen,and inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey. She then placed the bird(s) back in the oven.

    When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of
    the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird.

    With a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed,
    "Patricia, you've cooked a pregnant bird!" At the reality of this
    horrifying news, my sister started to cry.

    It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay
    eggs!

    Craig usually deep fries our turkeys...he called today and said stick em in the oven, he wouldnt have time to do it this year. He was supposed to be at the deer camp but seems his four wheeler quit on him so instead of taking it in to have it fixed, he went and bought a Kawasaki Mule with all the trimmings. Men

    I may be a good cook... I've just never cooked anything important before. But somehow thanksgiving is on me this year. I've made lots of desserts over the years but this will be my first main course. Baked the pies, they turned out great.
    As for the bird, i'm a little in the dark. I hope it's pretty self explanitory. Otherwise we may have turkey jerky before it's done.

    My wife usually bakes the bird in the traditional manner...in the oven.

    If you would like to try something great?...Deep fry your bird.
    For two of the last three years, we cooked our turkey in a deep fryer out in the back yard. Oil is expensive, but several neighbors used the same deep fryer to cook their own bird. It only takes about 45 minutes from start to finish for a good size bird. Look on the I-net for 'how to deep fry a turkey'...very easy, and the turkey is VERY moist.

    Enjoy...

    I got the best way...

    I go get the turkey out of the freezer, and give it to my wife.

    Then I go watch football all day, and all of a sudden, dinner appears. Its good to be the king.

    It's all a matter of perspective. I can think of about 5 million things I'd rather do than watch a football game, to include running a smoker. I'm pulling the turkey breast off the smoker in about 90 seconds.

    True. And since I brought up truth, I like to cook and will be doing a great deal of it for the holidays.

    I smoked ours this year. Brined it in an Apple Cider & salt solution overnight, put it on the smoker this morning. Just about ready to sit down and eat.
    Hint: when it's 15 degrees outside, wet wood chips should be brought inside!

    After a very good cleaning and scrub down with rock salt.. I take some freshly cut up some garlic (1 large garlic)into little slivers and stuff them under the skin. I then rub her down real good with olive oil (be careful they get slick). Put a stick of butter where the insides were (yes I removed them). In the pan she sits on a rack covered in foil.. after a couple hours in the oven at 325.. I pour out the now melted butter so it mixes with the drippings. Start basting every 1/2 hour.

    The garlic mixes in with the drippings, and when the butter gets in the pan and you start basting.. OH MY GOD the smell.. I torment everyone. My cats sit and stare at the oven.

    I am going to start trying to smoke them.. I have a few rubs that I use on my beer chickens that I think would rock. Of course I could get one of those big german beer things and try cooking it like that.

    I wanted to do a couple elk tenderloins that I got from a friend but my gf frowned on that.. I'll save those for the superbowl I suppose.

    Slowly in a wet smoker, takes about an hour per pound. Rub the turkey down with salt and spices, put in some wet mesquite chips on the coals and just watch TV...

    I need to get a smoker... it sounds like a good way to cook a bird. Does it work well with pheasants and other game birds?
