For some reason or another, Ralph's just gave me an 18 pound (I think...) turkey. The trouble is, I haven't even roasted a chicken in my whole life. Nor do I have a meat thermometer or whatnot that people buy for turkey cookin'.
So, my googling didn't turn up any results. (I didn't even know what to search for - turkey+no+fricking+clue+tools?) All of them require the use of a meat thermometer!
The turkey is defrosting right now with a running cold water bath, and I would like to somehow cook this turkey to make it edible. Nothing fancy here, just without the help of any thermometers . I know I'm risking possible food poisoning but I can't get to a meat thermometer without a car, and all the shops will be closed tomorrow.
Thank you very much! Sorry for clogging up the AskMe with more postings from me.
