38 lb turkey?

Ace_Mclean | Nov 17, 2006 03:29 PM

I just ordered my bird from the farm (Loags Corner in Chesco PA if you're wondering).

We've got a big group again this year, so on a whim, I asked what the biggest bird they have would be.

38 pounds!!!

I didn't need to go that high - we usually have one between 22-24, but I went with a 28 pounder.

Anyone cooking a 38 lb turkey? Would most standard ovens have trouble with this? Certianly, you'd need a big pan - but I wonder if there would be some other special prep as well.
