Dig a hole, fill it with rocks,
gather wood and burn it down.
Watching all the activity put Miss A to sleep.
The teenager suggested we keep a chain saw on hand next time we camp.
Build a solid coal bed and
rub down a thawed turkey with some canola oil and spices, stuff it with an onion,
wrap a turkey with foil three times,
wrap in a wet towel,
wrap with wire like a present
Cover with dirt, leaving some of the wire out so you can pull it out later.
Leave it alone and take a nap for 2 1/2 hours. Monitor with a meat thermometer. When the turkey gets to 180F, you are ready to eat.
A perfectly cooked, tender, juicy fabulously roasted turkey, cooked right in the ground.
The anticipation was great around our camp site to try the turkey.
Grandpa Eldon sliced and we thoroughly enjoyed.
Along with some roasted potatoes and corn on the cob, the tender turkey made for a lovely camping supper.
