Hey, I'm going to a relative's tomorrow for Thanksgiving. I LOVE not having to cook this meal this year, but the downside is that I'm not going to have the cornucopia of leftovers that make T-Day special for me. So I sneaked home a smallish turkey for me, a 12-pounder, to cook on Black Friday.
So, I'm wondering.... Anyone ever cooked such a bird on the spit? And is my workhorse 1960s Farberware Open Hearth (Mod 450) able to turn a 12-pounder? It looks like it will mount up and clear just fine, my worry is that it may be too heavy for the motor.
Suggestions for techniques also very welcome.
