as ye kin see, thays the propane cannystir with its fires a'burnin under that tub of grease. he splaind how he takes his turky n measures it in water furst sos he knows how much grease hes a'gone need.

here's the furst turky, witch he made two of em n coverd the furstn on the outside with a bunch of seasonins:

that grease wuz verr hot – 350 deegrees – sos it putt up quite a fuss:

boilin grease!

52 mints later, that 13-pound turky cum out a beeyootifull shade of black:

he dint putt no seasonin on the skin of tuther turky, witch as ye kin see, it cum out more golden brown (but thay both tasted grate):

that turky wuz the joosiest i ever et. fack is, twuz so good that folks et bout half the furst turky while twuz bein cut up. ye mite coulda thought twuz a pride of lions eatin! this here pitchers shows ye why:
