Looks great!

Carving is worth the effort. Think of all those leftovers...turkey soup, turkey spaghetti, King Ranch turkey, turkey pot pie.....

Consider the Turkey Cannon.
Amazon.com: Camp Chef, Sante Series Turkey Cannon Infusion roaster indoor/outdoor TKYC: Patio, Lawn & Garden

This does an amazing job with turkey both in the smoker and in the oven. Plug the throat of the bird with an onion or apple.
Put aromatics in the tube with wine or broth
Put the bird on the cannon and roast.

Steam builds in the cannon helping to cook the bird from the inside while roasting. Perfect tender and juicy every time.

Thanks, GQ, .40.

Oh there's leftovers alright, lol. My next step after a couple meals will be portioning and prepping for the freezer. I expect I'll be eating a lot of turkey & biscuits this winter (turkey, veggies and gravy over biscuits). And tetrazzini! mmmm

I've only made it once as there aren't enough leftovers every year.

That is a FINE looking turkey. I know its a lot of work, but hey, its worth it. I'd suggest putting your whole bird under plastic wrap outside til you feel like dealing with it, but I think your puppies might be a problem. ;)

Thanks, Alix.
And I had thought of sticking in the grill overnight, but with temps in the low twenties I figured it would freeze... of course then I could have started a, Is it OK to thaw cooked turkey and re-freeze it thread

The ultimate turkey sandwich in Layers. I like stuffing in mine. I know, it's bread and more bread. Somehow I think it's worth it for a once in awhile treat. Or hot turkey sandwiches with mash potatoes for a quick meal. Makes up for all the work and time you did prepping.

You can also make a turkey stock with the carcass. It's surprising how much meat you can clean off after a long slow simmer. And freeze the stock in usuable size containers.
