Default Gratin potatoes

I can start the ball rolling.

I would do traditional, french style gratin potatoes. Nothing but potatoes, onions, cream, butter, gruyere and parmesan. I'm not saying it's good for you, but it tastes great. I wouldn't add stock, milk or wine. Stick with the good stuff.

You might saute everything in a pan on top of your oven, then pour it into a terracotta dish with a cover. Take the cover off at the endn to brown.

With ingredients like that, and wood-fired oven, you can't go wrong.

There are a number of recipes in the forum on Turkey -- use the search button to see other postings on that.

I'm not sure my oven will be ready - but I will cook it in some form of a brick oven!! maybe staked bricks with a sheet metal roof - but we will be cooking!

I have used the method of soaking the turkey for 24 hours in a brine w/herbs for the last couple of years. They have yielded the most tasty and moist turkeys I have ever had. There are plenty of recipies on the internet, but I think Alton Brown on Foodtv.com has a good one.

With all the soaking, I think this would lend itself to wood oven baking very well.

I'll be documenting it....
