Turducken - 15 Degrees To Go
Happy Thanksgiving all. It's down to the wire now. All my side dishes are complete and ready for warming up. My Turducken is in the oven. I woke up at 3:30am this morning to get it going. My oven was preset for 225 degrees. After getting it going, I graciously went back to bed. By the time I finally got out of bed and checked at 8:00am (4 1/2 hours into cooking), the temp was at 127 degrees. I started the basting with the pan juices. Looks quite moist even without the basting but just in case.
By 10:00am (6 1/2 hours into cooking) the temp was at 150 degrees and it looks and smells fantastic. The color is already a golden brown but not quite complete yet-15 degrees to go.
