Another friend and her husband decided to raise free-range turkeys one year. They were a bit unclear on how much to feed the birds or how quickly they grew...well, they ended up with a 68# turkey coming back from the slaughter house. Their solution? The husband made an outdoor "roaster" out of a barrel and they invited all the neighbours. The catch? Everyone had to come dressed as a pumpkin.

Oh--on the free-range turkey, be sure you specify the weight range stories, another friend in CT ordered an organic, free-range turkey. When he picked it up, it weighed 32#. It was too big for their biggest roaster. (Fortunately, they have a commercial range and oven). They put the turkey in a garbage bag, stuffed it in an oversized cooler, drove to their local housewares supply store, and brought it in to test if it fit in any of the roaster pans. They did buy the roaster in which it fit, but can you imagine the clerks' responses to this couple hauling this black garbage bag in saying they needed to see if it fit in any of the roasters the store stocked?
