    16x11" door hight

    Hi, I started to build 32" oven and wondering now: how big turkey I can push in with this door size?

    apparently you stuff the warbler with a olive too.


    I might need to get the tape measure out for that one though
    or the angle grinder
    Ultimately it's still possible to bump this recipe a natch

    I had to search for Turducken and found this : five-bird roast - a goose, a turkey, a chicken, a pheasant, and a pigeon, stuffed with sausage.....

    Stopped by Costco this afternoon and they had their turkeys on "day after Thanksgiving sale". We picked up a 21.7 pound turkey and of course I had to measure it. So, in my roaster--on the roaster rack--the bird is 9 1/4" high. Looks like we could easily fit a 25 pounder in our oven opening...but since there's only two of us...

    Anyway. we've got it going with a dry brine and will roast the beast in the oven Monday--I somehow suspect there will be a party of some sort. Hope you have a great bake!

    My opening height is 11.75" (about 30 mm) and I've done a 16 pound (7.2 Kg) with no problems. Also something to think about is the pan you'll be using. My turkey pan/roaster has an insert that lifts the bird up (out of the drippings). So you need to be aware of both the pan width and added height of any rack you may use. After I did a dry brine on the turkey and put it in the rack, it settled/spread out slightly. There was plenty of clearance when I slid it into the oven, I'm pretty sure that I could have done a 20 pound turkey easily. Also be aware that with a bigger bird it will be closer to the dome while cooking and you may need to cover it with foil to prevent "over browning".

    p.s. I actually did take a tape measure with me to the store...

    I'm curious about intact, short of going in a store with tape measure
