The pop up timer is fine... if you like dry, shiatty turkey.

The timer is better used as a buttplug than as something to tell you when your turkey is cooked.

Have you seen the cost of peanut oil? Holy crap, no way am I going to spend $50 for 3 gallons of it.

Smoking mine on the BBQ, with about $3 of charcoal and wood.

I put on on the rotisserie over charcoal and apple wood the other week just for practice... and sandwiches.

When I read stories like this it makes me wish I had the willpower to be a vegetarian.

/ but I am a weak, weak man...

Hunt up Alton Brown's brine turkey recipe. We use it every year and have no plans to change.

/You'll need a completely thawed turkey 24 hours before meal time

Came here to say just that. Don't think I've had one of those things pop up on a chicken or turkey I've cooked in a decade. Brine the turkey for a day to make it extra moist, and it's better to cook it without the stuffing, makes it cook much faster and doesn't overcook the rest of it. If you really want to speed up the cooking, butterfly it and you can have a 12 lb turkey done in about 1-1.5 hours.

This. Alton is the god of cooking.

Saying "THIS!" is quite inadequate here. I've brined several turkeys over the years and they've been delicious.

the pop up timer has always worked well for me. also it puts a end to back seat drivers if there is such a thing with cooking turkeys. when it pops it is immediately coming out and not a minute sooner or later.

Once again, it looks like they forgot to butter the balls.
