I have cooked a 12 pound turkey on a campout and it turned out great. I =
cooked it in smoker I made in the ground. Basically the smoker was a big =
2 chamber pit with a halve wall between the two. On one side was the =
fire and the other a grill and the bird. Once the fire was started, I =
placed a steel sheet over both holes and 8 hours latter we had a =
Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings. I did have to feed the fire =
during this period and rotate the bird a few times, but that was about =
all I did. If you plan to do something similar, get a bird with one of =

the quickest I would cook it was just over an hour. =20

I am still interested in the idea of turkey and chicken cooking on a =

I continue to be unsure of the type of "can" cooking. The hamburger =
turned away from my real question. (Which is in no way to detract from =
serious information on e-coli..., which the list will determine if it

Thanks, I'm listening.
