The other day John asked if I could make him some chicken. I called my mom up and she told me how to cook it. Turned out pretty good.

Somehow I'd rather just let her cook it! I don't know if she'll go for that though!

A turkey really isn't as hard to cook as it looks. All you really have to do is put it in the pan, and put it in the oven. Check out the Butterball website. They have a foolproof cooking method.

We have one of those big oven roasters and that's what we make our turkeys in and they turn out sooo good.

I will never cook a turkey, just the thought of touching the skin makes me sick

That's so funny!!! I have always cooked just the breast of turkey on the bone, like with no legs/wings etc. And last year I made a turkey, a whole one, and I almost passed out when I pulled the stuff out from inside the turkey....thank GOD my sister was there to help! It was that big long naked neck that did me in....I thought I was gonna puke! I didn't wanna touch it at all!

(the breast of turkey doesn't have all that, it has a few small pieces heart etc in a bag that you don't even have to see, I just throw it out! )

Oh my goodness - you throw it out? I chop up all that lovely stuff and include it in the stuffing. Well except for the neck - I don't use that.

Tell my sis-in-law that she put the thing in the oven with all the extras still in it paper and all Now that was a long time ago, but I'd bet 30 years later she'd do the same thing. She doesn't go by live and learn

I have a Showtime Rotisserie thingy, and it does turkey PERFECTLY. the constant turning means its self-basting - I baste every half hour or so, but its not like in an oven, where the butter just drips down the sides and into the bottom of the pan - it stays on the surface of the bird much longer, cos it's constantly turning.. the skin comes out DIVINE. It takes a long time - I forget how long, I haven't made one in a couple years - but it is SO worth it. I'm making one for Christmas this year

I just cooked a turkey monday. Think of it as a big chicken. I cook the neck for Ox but he didn't eat too much of it thid time. As for the other stuff if I am cooking the turkey for more than just Neil & I I will make my mom's stuffing which calls for the all that other stuff. I roast first in oven. Picking the lirrle bit of the meat from the neck isn't so bad then!! The rest goes in the grinder with the meat I add to the bread stuffing.

Am I the only weirdo who wears gloves when handling pultry (or any kind of meat for that matter?) I can't stand to touch the stuff, but i do enjoy cooking, so i always put on some disposable gloves when I cook stuff like that- works like a charm (don't forget, for every two pounds of turkey,you need an hour or so in the oven

I was thinking of wearing gloves...and a mask. I don't know what's up, but the last few years I get nauseous and the sight and smell of raw meat. Ok well I've only had my own place for a few years now....but yuck!
