I left it in the oven on the lowest setting for hours as it was still partly frozen.
Well it came out of the oven so perfectly done that it was falling apart but still moist.
I didn't take any pictures, but Rick & I will be eating turkey everything in the next few weeks, there's 2 of us and a 13lb bird was the smallest he could find.
@ Rudy & Dennis--Got a good recipe for turkey soup? I'm tired of mine.
@ James--please check your email
@ splummer--too bad you're so far away-the rhubarb is almost ready
@ Ezrablu--please write

Last report I made on this thread was that I'd been gifted with a 15 pound turkey and I was asking for recipes and comtemplating smoking the darn bird.
Well I don't want to be tending the smoker for hours because it has to smoke roughly 1 hour per pound . SO--I am going to thaw it out, cut it up and just smoke the breast meat, grind the thighs for burger, put the drumsticks in the soup pot and curry the wings.
So one day next week it will be Esmerelda's turkey soup with whatever vegetables we have lying around. Tomorrow is pea soup because it's been damp and cool here and I cooked a cottage ham the other day and froze the broth.
PS. Dennis, I have another recipe for you and will try to send it later
Lots of turkey meals ahead
Anybody want to come up for the summer and help with the garden? My family has let me down, Rick is helping others ALL the time and if I don't get some help I won't have anything to put away for winter.
