    I've never been a cook by anyone's standards I had the house to myself last night so i decided to grill my turkey ( i figured being alone would save my some embarassment if it burned). Never done it before, so I expected some nasty burned meat. I put some lawry's seasoned salt on it, cut it up, and grilled it. It actually wasn't too bad. Of course, I had so much salt and BBQ sauce on it I wouldnt have tasted the blackened pieces anyway.lol The dog even ate it! (my last cooking experience the dog wouldn't touch it). Just wondering how do you guys do it?

    You can do many things with your bird, I tend to try and keep at least one whole to deep fry, the others I just remove the breast and thighs. Fry the thighs just like chicken, the breast I like to cut into strips then grill them after they have been marinated in any of your favorite sauces. I have also fried them and used the left over grease as a base for a gravy. Goes well with some mashed potatos and corn on the cob.

    To bad I am in class tonight or I would be working on some now. getting hungry.

    I have made fajitas, smoked them, made jerky out of em, fried them, backed them. I just love to eat them most any way. I have even cut and pounded them into sheets wrapped bacon, onions, garlic, and other herbs and rolled them up and grilled them. Stir fry is good too.

    wild turkey

    dress out the indside, but leave feathers on.
    fill cavity with onions, garlic, potatoes, butter.

    coat bird in mud all the way around, YES MUD

    Place bird on a bed of hot coals in a 2 ft deep pit

    fill pit in with dirt

    leave for 4 -5 hrs

    dig bird up

    crack mud and pull the mud off, it will pluck the feathers

    I like to cut the breast up in chunks, dip in honey, then breading and deep fry.
