I gave a neighbor one of my beer can chix a few weeks ago, and he asked if I could do the same to a turkey. Hmm, why not? Next day he brings me a 12 lber, and a Fosters oil can. My first time, but here we go.
Rubbed and ready. Neck cavity stuffed with garlic and onion. Top of fosters can removed, 2" of beer removed ( in my throat at 6am:roflmaoha0:), and refilled with butter.

Curt,
Looks real Good.

Your workers are lucky!
Something special about knocking off work a little early to have a couple cold ones with some good company.

Hope you have a great weekend.

That boid looks really good! First one I've seen done that way and it's an inspiration to give it a try. Guess Foster's is the logical choice.

Ummmm......... need any help at the wood shop? Maybe just an old gray haired fat guy to hang around and watch the Chubby? Sample things and make sure they are "Ok"? I'd help sweep up a bit. Bring my own chair. And "something cool to drink". :D

Just a thought why couldn't you use a 28 oz bushes bean can with say, garlic, thyme, shallot and some white zifendel?

I think any aluminum can would work just fine. I'm not sure it adds moisture to the bird, but maybe it keeps it from losing moisture. I would imagine the higher boiling point of the alcohol keeps it from evaporating as quick. The process was probably meant to use on a higher heat grill, therfore the evaporation of the liquid rises and must pass up and thru the bird. Most of the flavor seems to come from what you stuff in the neck opening.

Just my:twocents:

Ok marinaide in the wine and make a compound butter and work it under the skin then jam a texas sweet in the neck hole. there is always a way.

:thumbs up: Curt, that is way cool! I've heard about BCT, but this is the first time I've seen one. Excellent!

Side note: A family friend has a "turkey cannon" (http://www.campchef.com/store/item/155/TKYC_infusion_roaster_turkey_cannon.html), which uses the same concept, just not in a vertical position. Good birds, but I like the Fosters can better.

:twocents: I've had a lot of folks say they can't tell a difference in the flavor, regardless of liquid used. I think it works to provide moisture from the inside to "baste" the bird as it cooks.

Dang, I gotta stop eating those cabbage burritos. My eyes are burning and I gotta replace the wallpaper again. http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll251/vsg914/101_0194.jpg
