Gourmet Trash Can Turkey
|Turkey||13 Pound, tied if you desire|
Lay a large piece of aluminum foil on a non-flammable spot on the ground.
Place the wood board/dowel in the center of the foil.
Place a cleaned turkey, legs down, over the dowel.
Place the trash can upside down over the turkey.
Pour 1 bag of charcoal on top of trash can. Pour the other bag of charcoal around the base of the trash can. Make sure all of the charcoal is on the large piece of foil covering the ground. Using a stick lighter, light the charcoal in several places (do not use lighter fluid!).
Allowing the charcoal to flame, cook the turkey for 90 minutes.
Rake the coals off the top and from around the base. Carefully remove the trash can (use gloves - it's hot) and viola' - there's your browned, crispy turkey!
