Step 5: Lifting the Can

Picture of Lifting the Can
Let the bird cook until the coals are completely burnt and almost cool. You will need oven mitts to lift the can, but the coals should not be hot. Be careful when lifting the can, make sure to lift dircetly up so the coals/ashes do not get on the bird. Once evenyone gets a good look at your masterpiece take it off the rod and carve that baby.

I hope you enjoy and let me know if you make your own. Be safe and have fun!

I had a friend come over and cook a turkey in a trash can years ago, and it was one of the most beautiful turkeys I have ever seen. Really cool for sure. I don't know if I will be able to find pictures but I know we took some.

We cooked it in the garage on a concrete floor, so no grass to kill. The other thing we did was use a couple of bricks and a grill grate to keep it off the ground (same difference).

I rarely ever agree with the safety ninnies, but in this case I would absolutely say you need to burn off the galvanization. Otherwise rock on!

Awesome! I hope to try this when I have my very own yard I can destroy, or find someone else who's yard I can destroy.

If you keep cooking like that...the girls will be following around.
