A (little late) Thanksgiving Post

I'm a bit behind the times, but I wanted to share my Thanksgiving pictures, particularly the turkey. I was able to get a locally raised and butchered, free range bird.

Since the weather was too warm to cook him (yes it was a him) on the wood stove, I used the grill instead.

He got stuffed with fresh Rosemary and Sage, had a nice mayonnaise massage and a dusting of salt and pepper. I put some water in the b
ottom of the roaster, tented him with foil and cooked for 3 hours in a 300ish closed grill.
These birds have more natural fat so basting was not nec
essary and he came out moist but with crispy brown skin.

Boogie enjoyed him very much!
