Davydd - you don't know what you're missing. I was given this as a gift from a tool salesman that calls on me. He nor I have anything to do with Orion other than using their product. This turkey was the best tasting and juiciest turkey I've ever eaten, with the benefit of being the easiest to cook. I've fried turkies for the last 10 years, but I will not be frying them again. This was too easy and the results were excellent.
Russ - I liked your thermometer trick. It was actually reading 180 about 10 minutes before the suggested cooking time was up. I let it go the full hour and 45 min. just to be sure. The thermometer was more for a warm/fuzzy effect. No, the turkey could not fit in or be cooked in a Dutch oven. The words "cabin fever" come to mind.
Billhat - Don't give up on posting. The postive will overcome the negative in due time.
Johh A - Thanks for the support. It was very good! Wish I could share it online.
As a side note, my wife asked me to cook a brisket this coming weekend, even though she said the turkey was too juicy. I can't wait.
Anyone want pictures if I do?
Happy New Year and keep on cooking.
