And it's quite the heavy package. 62 bucks to feed 25-30 seems reasonable. [p]The instructions say 375 covered for four hours, then uncovered for one. [p]Does this sound right? I am terrified that I may ruin a 62 dollar meal...


  • Mark Backer,[p]So you can buy a pre-made TurDuckEn?[p]

    GrillMeister,[p]Oh yeah. And if you are smart enough, you can actually pre-purchase a FRESH thawed, hand done one right then. Mine's frozen. They'll ship too, I believe. [p][p]if not, you can go to

    Mark Backer,
    You'll do great!! Those directions are looking pretty accurate. It will put you in the neighborhood and you can use your termometer to get in the final place.[p]They are pretty moist by the way they are constructed, so I would go to like 160° and then pull it for a good 30 minutes to an hour to let it rest.[p]You will enjoy it very much I'm sure.

  • Mark Backer,[p]Cool! The price is right for all the work done. Sound like you thaw it out and slap it on the egg for few hours. Sit back and accept the massive amount of praise and awe at your culinary skills.[p]Let us know how it turns out.[p]Cheers,[p]Ed

    I almost forgot to might want to have some beer on hand. 'cause sometimes they get a little spicy, especially when those non native cajuns get a hold of things. I know Eggsellent will be happy, but if I remember you weren't the biggest fan of the heat.

    Mark Backer,
    Remember, this is a desnely stuffed "bird". A regular stuffed turkey takes much longer to cook and this one is stuffed with more than a bread stuffing.[p]The interior chicken has to be cooked otherwise you'll ruin more than a $62 meal. You'll be fine.
