    Imaginary? Decapitated? In doll form? Large breasted and tasteless? :slayer::slayer:

    Salty and juicy?
    Marinated in Coke? (oh wait that's ham)
    Dry and overdone?
    Dark meat?


    Alright, I'll find a 10lber and invite more some more people.
    Dry brine for 24 hours before hand, butter under skin, pepper and sage, carrot, onion, and celery in the cavity?

    I haven't roasted a turkey in years but I dislike butter and stuff under the skin, it makes the roast look unattractive in my experience.

    Random food question:

    While in France over the summer I had something in several bakeries and every so often I try to remember what its called so I can figure out how to make it, but I just can't remember. So I thought I'd see if anyone here has any idea what I'm talking about. Mystery item is a small, round, and savory bread with a bagel-like consistency and a depression or hole in the center filled with various toppings. The two combinations I remember were ham and cheese and olives, nuts, and chevre. I found something in my searching that looks similar - a bialys, but I'm not sure what those taste like - I've never seen or heard of them before. The name Kouglof or Kugelhopf sticks out in my mind, but that appears to be something very different. Maybe I was pointing at the thing I was buying and just saying the wrong name :D

    A recipe I am making calls for scallops to be steamed in a combination steam oven at 185 for 2 minutes. I don't have a steam oven. What's a good alternate method to steaming scallops. In a basket over simmering water?

    Steaming would be fine. Or sous vide, though cooking scallops sous vide sounds odd to me.

    I also want to seal liquid in a bag to cook with, but am without a chamber vac. I assume I can just prepare the liquid, freeze it with some liquid nitrogen, and then pop it in the bag?

    Freezing works. Or you can cut off a lot of extra plastic bag and hang it over the counter.

    But really, you should just get a chamber sealer.

    I froze it. It worked. But I can imagine that it becomes a pain if you are sealing a lot of liquids in bags to cook with on a regular basis.
