WFO Turkey - How'd you do it? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • WFO Turkey - How'd you do it?

    Hey Team WFO,

    Cooking the full turkey is on my list of 'what to cook next' in the WFO, and I am inspired by the stories I have read here on the FB Forum about cooking the bird. A search for 'turkey' doesn't give me a manageable list of cooked bird stories (I was surprised how often 'turkey' is used in conversation..).

    So my question to those who have traveled this path (cooked a WFO Turkey) is:

    How did you do it, and did you like the results?

    My biggest concern is about what temperature to start the bird, and about how long to cook the darn thing. What size bird did you start with. What was the oven temp to start - approximately.... Did you use foil to keep from drying out the top.. did you stuff the bird... you know, those kinds of questions...

    I'll appreciate any turkey cooking stories you can share!

    Re: WFO Turkey - How'd you do it?

    Here are some good threads from last year... basically a turkey in a WFO seems to be fairly forgiving, you'd have to get a lot very wrong for it not to taste nice!





    Oh and btw... stuff it! Its a pity to roast a turkey without stuffing.

      Thanks for this collection of links. This is great information..

      After reading the comments from folks about their successes cooking these birds, I am anxious to give it a try!

      And yes, the stuffing is mandatory.

        Thanks! Bump!It was the silliest incident that brought Nannette into my life.buy wow gold, I had been in my local supermarket and spent more than I should. When I reached the checkout girl I remarked, wow gold jokingly, that my money was all gone after I had paid for all the articles. On my way out through the main doors a girl suddenly appeared and asked me, wow gold that if I was really short of cash, she was willing to lend me some maple story mesos, in order for me to get home. I was very surprised and she was a rather attractive looking girl maple story mesos. Now, as it was hardly an everyday experience, maple story mesos having a gorgeous girl appear out of thin air and offer me money. maple story gold ,maple story power leveling
