KS>Let me try to convey a recipe that my quartermaster used when I was
KS>Course Director of SE 526 back in 1990 here in South Florida Council.
KS>He called it "garbage can turkey."
I have another method:
Take 7-4' pieces of half inch rebar.
Drive three of them into the ground as a tripod. Use a small bit of
chain or cable to suspend the turkey from the tripod.
Drive the other 4 pieces of rebar into a square pattern about a foot or
so off of the turkey.
Form 4 chicken wire tubes about 2 inches (or a little more) in diameter.
Slide these over the 4 rebar stakes.
Fill the chicken wire tubes with charcoal and light the charcoal.
Wrap around the outside of the square formed by the charcoal tubes with
aluminum foil. This makes the whole setup a big reflector oven. Then
let it cook. Add charcoal to the tops of the tubes as necessary.
Takes 4 to 5 hours, but tastes great. Baste turkey as desired. (Don't
stuff the turkey.)
