Turkey in the ground!

One of my friends at work was telling me that him and a couple of friends cooked their turkeys in a pit. They dug a hole in the ground and filled it with charcoal. Then they covered the turkeys with aluminum foil and put them in the hole. They covered them up and took them out in the morning and ate them. He said the turkey was so tender that the meat was falling off the bone! Sounds Yummy!! :biggrin: :biggrin:

Where's my shovel??? :biggrin: :biggrin:

I've heard of that method with beef and pork but not turkeys. But why not!

Glenn R was talking about digging a pit in his yard and wrapping some meat and pork in burlap sacks, throwing coals on them and then burring it in the dirt and wait until morning to eat...sounds interesting!!

I've heard stories from the old time firemen who used to do clambakes at the beach. They dug a hole, filled with the fire, bed of seaweed, clams then another bed of seaweed. Steamed clams like that they say were great.
I hope this isn't negative!
