Every day that passes
Something new comes along
Something old fades away

Where do we stand
When the past is gone
And the future not yet here

'Tis but the present
in it, we but survive
The Daily Grind...

That looks... obscene. (But I'm still hungry.)

btw - what size turkey? You told me last year, but I forgot :)

usually - 10 lb turkey + 10 gallon metal can (NOTE - if you use a new can, it must be 'pre-burned' to remove the galvinzation (galvination process is toxic)) + 20 lbs charcoal - check in 1 hour, turkey should be done.

I actually use a 20 gallon metal can.
this bird was 13lbs - and i ended up using 30 lbs of charcoal.

charcoal should be lit & ready to go before putting it on/around can (don't want lighter fluid corrupting the turkey's flavor) If you add more charcoal while its cooking, DO NOT use the stuff with the lighter fluid in it.

maybe I can find the time to do this over at Mom's before it snows. :) (I'm expecting snow before the end of August, btw lol)

btw - how do I burn the can? Just cook an imaginary turkey? Or hose it down with a blow torch?

"how do I burn the can? Just cook an imaginary turkey?" that's what i did. (actually did it twice)

suppose a blowtorch would work, but you'd haveta wear a respirator as you don't want to breathe in the toxic fumes.

doing it the other way, you get the coals going, and walk away - let it burn itself out, then do it again.
