Thanksgiving Turkey in a Wood Fired OvenNov 16, 2015Posted by Chef LeaPrint
Do not be afraid! If you’ve already been making pizza or roasting chickens in the wood fired oven, roasting a turkey is as easy as (pumpkin) pie. Be patient about getting the oven down to roasting temperature of about 500°F – 600°F. Because if you’re rushed and you throw Henny Penny in when the oven’s too hot, you’ll lose the crispy crust. And DO remember to make a strong foil to protect it. Remember that the turkey breast is much closer to the dome of the oven where all that heat is collecting.
