Cowboy Cooking is poetry for Thanksgiving..

Thankful Turkey
The fear of all turkeys is that they will wind up dry, resembling a dehydrated “just add water” meal, without the water, rather than the moist delicacy enjoyed by the Pilgrims. To help alleviate this fear, and have the turkeys flocking to your house for Thanksgiving dinner, just follow this moisture guaranteed recipe.
20 lb Turkey
750 ml bottle Chablis Blanc
14 oz pkg bread stuffing mix
1/2 lb butter
8 oz pkg sliced mushrooms
1 c walnuts
1 onion
2 Tbl honey
2 Tbl dried summer savory
1/2 tsp garlic juice
1/2 tsp onion juice
The night before cooking the bird, pour the Chablis into a saucepan, wrap summer savory in a coffee filter and secure with a piece of thread. Cover for the night. Remove summer savory from Chablis (reserving savory for stuffing ) and add butter, garlic juice, onion juice and honey to Chablis. Inject this mixture evenly throughout bird.
Melt remaining butter over low heat. While butter is melting chop onion.When butter is melted add onion and sauté until clear. When onion is clear combine this mixture withstuffing mix, walnuts, mushrooms and
savory. When this mixture is well blended, loosely stuff body and neck cavities of the bird, tie legs together. Cover and roast for 5 hours on 350.
After 4 hours, remove cover and cook for an additional hour or until thewings remove easily when pulled.
Serves 8 to 10.
