We just had a family Tanksgiving Potluck during a Boy Scout camping weekend. We prepared two 20 lb trashcan turkeys. I really like turkey and have found the trashcan is the absolute best recipe.
Inject thawed turkey with your favorite flavoring. Apply rub spices to skin.
Drive a stake in the ground and install the turkey onto the stake. Invert a steel trash can over the turkey. Place the hot contents of a full large bag of charcoal around the lover perimeter of the trash can and some coals on top. Walk away. In about 2 hours, add more coals. Walk away. After about 3 hours of cooking time, slowly remove trashcan, check turkey temp. If done, remove and carve.
Garnish with gravy, potatoes, stuffing and the ever present green bean casserole and enjoy.
It is undoubtedly the most moist turkey ever,
Do you have any sort of drip pan under the turkey while it’s roasting? I just can’t imagine Thanksgiving dinner without gravy...
