Oven Size for Turkey

Appropriate at this time of the year to consider what could be a major problem for the US audience at the moment, and for a large section of other nationalities in about a month's time:

What oven do you have onboard, and how big a turkey can you get in it.

What other items do you cook of the traditional accompanying bits, and how many burner rings do you have?

Force 10 two burner with oven

It will only hold a 2.5lb turkey.
As that is an unusual size and rather difficult to find, I substitute either pidgion, seagull, or tofurky.

i use my barbeque...LOL and i donot eat turkey!!! i make a whatever i want on the que and cook the rest there as well---foil to wrap the veggies and taters and yams, and fire for the rest LOL......btw-- i live onboard a formosa 41---large and stable enough to use a weber smokey joe kettle and mesquite.....even turkey parts would be good on it!!! and it could hold to size equal to capon--a small hen would work.......

We've gotten a 9 pound turkey in our 3 burner Force ten stove. We removed the broiler when it was new, gives a bit more room in the oven and we never use a broiler. Also took the handles off a stainless roasting pan so that it would fit. Slides in so tight nothing moves!

You'll enjoy this. We have the European 3 burner Force 10 which is the smallest they make. A couple years ago I bought a "bone in frozen turkey breast" for our Thanksgiving dinner as I knew we'd be offshore. I asked the butcher if he could cut in in half for me and he replied, that by law, he could not. So we bought it and went back to the boat where I put a new blade in my sabresaw and did it myself. Diane cooked a great turkey dinner with trimings as we sailed from Beaufort to Charleston.

My family in Australia cooks the Turkey on Christmas day whole on the BBQ. Admitedly a big one, but the turkey is also very large. I was wondering if anyone else took this route onboard?

No boat oven yet, but in Japan the ovens are probably same size, we did a smoked turkey (12lb). Fully cooked already, serve it cold or as we did slice it up and wrap in tin foil. Taste awesome.

Never tried to cook a turkey in the oven but I would guess we could cook an eighteen pounder in it. It's a big 4 burner job, can't remember the brand.

Our Smev 3 burner will certainly take a 10lb roast, at a pinch

We cooked a turkey breast roast. They are actually very good.

If you can find a real butcher they'll halve it for you with their band saw. If you cook it cut side down in a rectangular cake pan type affair it will retain it's juices. This way you will only need to figure out how to store 1/2 of the leftovers and you won't be so sick of turkey by Wednesday that you'll be more willing to cook the other 1/2 before July or August, at best.
