  • Muffins, Pizza, Foccasia, Turkey

    After an evening of pizza, the next morning:

    Oven Casa2G 100

    Oven temperature at 8:00am 425 degrees: Pan of blueberry muffins (elevated on a Tuscan Grill), a Chicago Style deep dish pizza - using left over ingredients from the previous evening, and a Stromboli. All turned out very well and golden brown.

    I choose to elevate certain things to prevent burning the bottom:

    Roasted Turkey - Stats:

    Oven Temperature: 375 degrees (cheap oven thermometer on the floor) Actual floor temperature estimated at 400+ degrees. (I forgot to take that reading).
    Door Temperature: 300
    Turkey: 10.9 pound Butterball. Whole Onion and celery stuffed in both cavities. Rubbed with butter & seasonings. Wireless meat thermometer inserted into the breast.
    Steel Roaster covered and elevated off the floor with a Tuscan Grill
    Cook time: In at 1025 hours out: 1325 hours. 3 hours elapsed cooking time
    Internal reading at 1105 hours. 30 minutes elapsed time: 160 Degrees. Wireless thermometer reinserted into the breast. New reading 93 degrees.
    1325 hours wireless temperature reading 208 degrees. Second (handheld) meat thermometer confirms 208 degrees.

    Note: Turkey is done at 175 internal breast temperature; 180 degrees in the thigh. Generally roasted at 15/20 minute per pound at 325 degrees.

    I had to leave unexpectedly during roasting, but I speculate that it was done at about 2.5 hours of roasting.

    Conclusion: Success! I'm glad I used a Butterball Turkey. The pre-brine must have saved the bird, because it wasn't dry. Covering the bird is necessary. It was nice and brown. I think because it was elevated, the dome heat played a significant role. Afterwards I did a pan of stuffing in a steel pan right on the floor for about an hour, and a pan of foccasia elevated on the grill. Both worked very well.

    I elected to start roasting the turkey at 375 in thinking that I should compensate for temperature drop. But this wasn't the case. I speculate I could have waited until the oven dropped to 325 and roasted for a longer time.
