I got a roaster oven for christmas. I was thinking about slow cooking a turkey. Due to the time I can usually only cook turkey on the weekend otherwise I am eating pretty late.
The conversion in the manual puts a 10lb bird around 7 hrs. I need to do around 10. Instead of buying a bigger bird figured just let it cook.
Anyone try it?

Thats a lot of turkey. No, I have never wanted to cook a turkey for 10 hours. Call me strange, weird, etc. but it just doesnt appeal to me. Heck, cooking for 30 minutes is enough!

I can never say no to a turkey fried in peanut oil. Best way to cook turkey.

(not talking about the healthiest though)

Why do you need to cook for 10hours?

I assume there is no temp setting otherwise you could just lower the temp a bit and let her roast for 10.

my mom is a physician and doesn't have time to prepare meals for my younger brothers. She calls herself the crockpot queen...and has boiled a turkey many a time. They actually turn out all right.

i just cut the turkey into slices and slap it onto a non stick pan, using no oil may make the taste a little bit blah, but hey watch on the fat/calories.

thaw it first.

trust me.

incidentally if you just put it in your oven i bet ya it would be less than 10 hours.

10 hours! either he's on a strict diet, like one turkey in 10 hours or he needs to test his oven, No offence just kidding

no i agree - why use a special roaster to roast a turkey for 10 hours when you can put it in the regular oven, follow the instructions on the label, and roast it for probably around 5.

If my guess is right - I think he wants to cook it while he is at work so when he gets home he can eat it with out much work.
