We had ordered a few turkeys in the spring from the feedstore and I was a little upset that they didn't come in until the 1st week of June. My concern was that they wouldn't have time to get big enough before Thanksgiving. By August it was obvious they would be good sized by Thanksgiving and by October the concern became how we would fit them in the oven. My husband processed them last Saturday and the biggest one dressed out at a whopping 39 lbs, with the others being 35, 26 and 20 respectively. We're cooking up the 20 pounder tomorrow and the others are in the freezer. But when the time comes I'd like to know just how to wrangle a 39 lb turkey into the oven?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

I'm finally getting a chance to "flip" through your blog... We had a mammoth Turkey once, 40+ lbs. Had to cut off the breast and roast it separately! (Luckily we have 2 ovens.)
