Let me start with this disclaimer: I am not questioning the knowledge,
veracity, or anything else of others who responded to this post. I am also not
attempting to sway anyones actions, I am only relaying personal experience.
Your mileage will vary.
With that out of the way 8^), we have used the turkey in a trash can cooking
method for many years in my district (at least 6 that I am aware of). We have
never had a problem of any sort with poisoning of any kind. We do burn the
galvanization off the cans before we use them. This involves a couple of hours
with hot coals and making sure the can is rotated so that the coals burn ALL
the galvanization off the can. We have used this method at WEBELOS outdoor
training, Showando, Scoutmastership Fundamentals, and many of the other outdoor
trainings that we do. It always amazes the participants (as well as me) that a
20 lb bird cooks fully in 2 hours. The comment about the cans being impregnated
with insecticides is new to me. We haven't used a new can for 2-3 years so this
may have started after we acquired our cans. I will relay all this information
to our camping and training committees.

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