    Frying Turkey..... Stuffed with Stuffing

    Researched the subject. Stuffing inside is a major no no. As I thought it was, but I know there's a lot of crazy mofo's on this forum and thought, "well maybe?" someone like Dtel may have figured out a way. .... But the research consistently came back with a resounding "Definitly not a good idea". The Turkey would have to cook longer, because the oil won't make it to the breast cavity, and the dressing would be cremated by the time the turkey is fully cooked. Dtel, I hear yea. The oil is pricey, even at Costco where it's the cheapest, about $35 per jug. One jug is about 4 gals. I cook the turkeys outside, we live on a good size piece of property so I'm well away from the house, I also use peanut oil. Keep a fire extinguisher close by. The wife helps me strain the oil for reuse, and I'll store it back in the same jug. I buy 1 jug a year, and use it 2x.... on rare occasions 3x when wife's cousins ask us to for Xmas day. It's always a big hit. I inject with mixture of Creol cajun seasoning and butter, it never last long. People scarf it up, particularly the dark meat.... my favorite. Wife or relatives usually prep the stuffing in a casserole dish. About 18 to 20 lbs turkey will get clobbered in one setting on xmas. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Frying Turkey..... Stuffed with Stuffing

    I came to the same conclusion, but my wife is convinced otherwise......
  6. Anyone ever try it with the prepared stuffing already inside? My wife told me that a friend of hers told her that she heard from a friend of another friend (you know how that goes) that it can be done. So, if your experienced and feeling friendly please share your experience.

    Need mattress choice help

    Agree it's a snake oil subject, but I love my Sterns & Foster. I'm like you, I flip and flop and move around it drives my wife crazy sometimes. She can fall asleep quicker than you can say goodnight, and rarely moves. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    The Last Reply Wins

    Reminds me of my days living in Florida. Miami is like my hometown of Laredo.... pure culture shock, most people can't deal with it. I use to see these bumper stickers that said, "Last American To Leave Miami, Please Bring The Flag". I never got it, until I drove down there. It was / is a King Size Laredo..... with all the latino politics included. Wholly corrupt to the bone. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Did you really expect a different response.

    I don't play by the rules either, but based on the later part of that statement, you obviously don't get out much, or stray too far from your cave. I revisited my post, you're right, it was an attack, but I wasn't thinking "attack"; I guess I just don't understand why you always talk about "saving previous posts, for the purpose of future reference", when Dave went out of his way to give you (us) all that, and you still left. For years you endured worse from me and many others in "BS Land ", but you still left, and missed out on being introduce to my cousin, who I know you would have liked. On most political subjects, you and Roberto sound exactly alike, except that he's a sharp guy 😈, and successful architect in Dallas area. Just kidding.... you better know that.

    New in my Life Raising Chickens

    I've had or raised just about everything you could ever expect to find on a farm. Including chickens, since I was a small boy. Very relaxing to watch nowadays, and there's nothing like fresh free range eggs. Watch out for poop crusted butts. Dont let that happen, or chicks can die. Fresh food and water. daily. Keep your coop far enough away from and down wind (prevailing breezes) from the house. What type did you buy? Pullets or mixed? For keeping your chicks happy, I don't think pine needles are as welcoming as Bermuda hay, or wood shavings. Be sure and keep the chicks warm, don't allow any cold drafts where your keeping them. If you've got hawks around, dont let the chicks out for a few months. Right now we're down to 19 hens, and 4 roosters, which is too many roosters. Lots of cool breeds to consider, if you want good size eggs, black or red stars, barred rocks and rode island reds are tough to beat. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    I don't believe you have any desire to "Save" past political discussions. Dave went through the trouble of figuring our and setting up a "Safe Place" on Facebook, but you ran away. Claiming you were targeted and pick-ed on. Which I translated as, your not having a moderator's shoulder to cry on. Dave setup the perfect place and it still exist, but without you, it's just not enjoyable. I tried to keep you from running away, by introducing my cousin, another hardcore inbred liberal from Mexico City, but it was too late. You would have liked Roberto, but just as you came in with guns a blazing, you fizzled out faster than a mexican cuete.
