Default Turducken Time Lapse...

Hey John, this year's Turducken came out perfect once again! This time around, I used a 14 lb turkey, 4 lb Duck and a 6 lb chicken. After 45 mins of prep, and 2 hours in the oven at 375*F, we were ready to dive in!



What should have been enough to feed about 25 people, 13 of us nearly finished it off! As an experiment, I tried adding a big fat Jalapeno to the stuffing. The result was a pleasant "kick" without being too overwhelming.
Konig_Feather and kids prepared the mashed potatoes and gravy, while SlimJimx701x got the peas up to temp. DoYouFit? did the videos below:

The Sonora "Off Road" Drive:

This video actually makes the road look a lot calmer than the one I recall driving on! The road was way too rough for our "lowered" Fits. I was constantly scraping the lower lip. Then, on one particular bump, I knew that I lost it, I could "hear and feel" it getting ripped and mangled under the car. When we finally stopped 15 mins later, I was surprised to see it was still intact! Hmnm, who's lip did I run over?

This one took 2 hours at 375*F. Actually, 475*F for the first 30 mins. Then rotated the pan half a turn. Continued at 375*F for the next 90 mins, or until the inside temp hit 140*F-160*F.

How does that time lapse work? Part of your camera or an option on youtube?

That video was taken with a Go Pro Hero 2. "Time Lapse" is one of it's many cool features.

Default Our "Off Road Experience."

Hey John, I just noticed that I failed to include the video of our ride.
This was a long torturous experience. If you suffered watching this video, imagine how we felt having to drive this 30+ minute ordeal!

Warning, this is a long drive/video:

Mike you are getting pretty good at these. Wow that road looks like the ones around here when we go out into the country. If that was your car making the video it sounds GOOD.
