      A turkey pageant would be lovely, but I'm at my parent's house... no wfo.

      We ARE, however, having a turkey which was bagged by my dear husband. Not very large, but it will be very good eating. Maybe next year we'll have a wild turkey cooked in the wfo! (oh, the places one could go with that line....)

        This year I took a slightly different approach to the turkey. I've heard for years about brining, but my refrigerator isn't friendly to a five gallon bucket of brine. I read about a new technique, involving dry salting rather than brining, in this article:

        RECIPE: Roast salted turkey -- latimes.com

        I bought the turkey (pretty big, 20lbs) six days before the day, and defrosted it in the fridge for three days. Then I heavily salted it inside and out with ordinary seasoned salt. It sat in the refrigerator for another three days, salted, in a plastic bag, then today I rinsed it thoroughly, stuffed it, and put it in the oven on a rack in a roasting pan.

        The thanksgiving schedule:

        4:00 PM Wed. build first fire
        6:00 Wed make pizza
        8:00 Wed shovel out fire
        9:00 Wed door on
        7:30 AM Thur New Fire built
        10:30 Shovel out fire
        11:30 door on
        12:30 turkey in at 450f (oven thermometer in center of floor)
        2:30 rolls and casserole in at 350f.
        3:30 turkey out at 325f. (It read 155f internal temp, although my digital thermometer may be low)

        The salting made a tasty, moist bird. Like baking, it just takes some pre-planning, it's not difficult.
