guess what's in my backyard in a heavy plastic bucket with a lid? In cold water, over night? yep, the 17 pound lugnut.
I put it out there yesterday around 4:30 pm. Being that it's cold these days around here, and it snowed I think 3 or 4 days ago, I felt it safe to thaw that way. Heck, betcha $$2@@ (that's dollars to doughnuts) it's still frozen.
I've thawed it in cold water in the kitchen sink, overnight, in years past too. I was actually trying to brine it and didn't know :? (and you think you're forgetful?)
that you have to brine a 'thawed' bird. Who knew? Not me until I went online to look up brining yesterday.
I am curious to know if there are any other tried and true ways of assuring you have a moist bird and not turkey jerky?[/img]
