Let’s talk turkey

My daughter and her friend got to “meet” our Thanksgiving turkey at the Fairfield County Fair in October. This monster bird looked good in feathers and it will look even better on the table. After being dressed, it came in at a whopping 40 pounds. The lady on the turkey-cooking hotline was stumped and thought my wife was crazy to attempt cooking a 40-pound turkey. We measured the oven and this poultry giant just eeks in there. It has been soaking in brine for nearly a day and a half and I have high hopes for this delicious meal. Our daughter has also been regularly checking on her fair acquaintance both in the freezer and in in the cooler where it is soaking.
