Earlier this week I was in the grocery store and saw Butter*ball turkeys on sale. A 6 lb. turkey was $12 and that was a good deal, so I bought one. I knew our oven wasn't working but thought this bird would fit into the crockpot. I was mistaken.
Since it was a fresh turkey, I really didn't want to freeze it. I tried to figure out what I was going to do. Hubby and I put our heads together and decided that we would BBQ it.
Now our BBQ has no spit and is electric. We figured why not use it like an oven and put the turkey in a roasting dish and roast it. We cleaned it, washed it and placed it in the roaster only to realize the lid wouldn't fit. That was fine. I just covered it with aluminum foil.
It took us a while to get the BBQ heated to the right temperature. Then we put the roaster right on the rack. Of course we added water. 2.5 hours later, it was done to perfection. It did take more water than it would have if we'd cooked it in the oven, but we kept a close watch on it and ended up with a delicious meal.
Just goes to prove, where there's a will, there's a way. Hope you had a great day.
