a few days ago I posted here asking for "roaster tips" - well, GOT my roaster, GOT a bunch of roaster cookbooks, and have had one success after another.... if anyone WANTS roaster info, I bet I could xerox and fax them my cookbooks!
Guys- email me OUTSIDE of this chat-site, and I'll scan and send you scans of the pertinent pages tomorrow - how's that? But I have the Nesco 18-quart, with the fan in the lid that REALLY helps stuff BROWN - I have both books though, for the one with and WITHOUT the blower in the lid, and I coulds send both! Just put "roaster recipes" in the memo line, and send to firstname.lastname@example.org - ok?
Well, that's from the user's manual from the roaster. (Things take a while, more like a crockpot, but with extra bells & whistles.)
I'm still going between the roaster and just cooking the bird like my Grandpa did for years: cook the day before, slice it up nice, put into a large casserole dish (or dishes), cover with juices, cover tightly w/plastic wrap and then bake in the oven (foil covered) the next day. It's a lot easier to eat, since there's no carving time)
