Thanks Bruce,

You are right about trying to use grill or conventional oven times as a base for cooking in these things. Though, I have noticed on several cooks: pork, beef and poultry, that the WFO is very forgiving when it comes to over cooking .

That has saved me several times .

Happy holidays to you and yours,

Joe

Gulf, we have politely waited for you to recover from your turkey day excess. Inquiring minds want to know your critique of the food and changes (if any) you would make for the next occasion. Look forward to hearing from you. Bruce

I think that I covered what I am sure went wrong with the bread, even though it was still good. It was the first time that I have tried baking sourdough in the covered roasting pans or the dutch oven. I'll definately be trying that again. I have done it a few times on greased cookie sheets. I still haven't tried putting the loaves straight on the floor of the oven, though. But, I will eventually.

As for as the dry-brining; I think that I am hooked on it! I don't think that I would change anything about that. I think that the dry-brine and the plastic bags are the way to go. I got to see first hand how the salt pulled the moisture from the birds. It's kind of crazy, but on the 3rd day of dry-brining, most of the liquid is not rolling around in the plastic bag. It has been pulled back in to the bird. No extra water, just what was pulled out of the meat in the first couple of days.

Next time, I'll be checking the temps earlier, and will be leaving the meat thermometers in for a quick reference. Even with over shooting the internal temps, the meat was still juicy and the flavor was all the way to the bone. I've read where these ovens are forgiving on missing the finishing temps. I have also read that brining (in general) is also. I'm not sure which had the most effect on the birds still turning out great. But, I'll be staying with the dry-brining.............And, the WFO of course

As for as the smoke: I'm not advising that just yet. I only left the smoke in for about 30 minutes. The ovens might run a little too hot for it to be effective for much more time than this. There was only a slight hint of smoke in the flavor of the birds. But, it was just enough for everyone who commented on it. I'll be playing with the smoker some more in the near future.

Gulf,

Auburn lead Florida all the way until the 4th quarter then folded. Maybe a little of divine intervention is possible with the Saints!
