Plain Turkey

A fifteen pounder took just under four hours at 350 degrees.  Rubbed with sage butter and liquids converted to a simple gravy.  I wish I'd thought to cook an egg and some giblets to add into the gravy.  Something made me start thinking about Thanksgiving yesterday, and this is where it all ended.  Well, not ended just yet...

    Looks great.  Any wood for smoke?
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Nice! Is that the PS I see under there?

    I used an handful of apple chips, and there were probably a few remnants of hickory from yesterday's spatchcock chickens.

    Right - the platesetter was legs up, and I got separation using the little wire rack that comes inside most toaster ovens.  We sent a toaster oven into retirement recently and I nabbed the wire rack to use for the egg.  It came out decently for a spur-of-the-moment cook.  I've been informed that all future holiday birds will be egged.

    No need for modesty here.  That is more than plain turkey.  Beautiful job.

    Looks great! Turkeys are great things to make on the egg, I make little ones on my small egg every now and then. 

    So much better on the egg, no more worrying if Thanksgiving is going to have dry turkey!
