Default Hot Tub Turkey?

I've been having a lot of fun with Hot Tub Chicken. What do you think of Hot Tub Turkey for Thanksgiving?

Seems to me it ought to work on a bigger bird with a little extra time.

If you're not familiar with chicken in the tub, here you go...

Hot Tub Chicken - Spatchcock a chicken, make a nice garlic/oil/spice wet rub and insert it under the skin of the chicken.

Make a nice oil/onion/garlic/mustard/lemon/spice bath

Gill the chicken skin side down just long enough to get color and bite-through skin.

Then put the bird into a large foil pan, skin side up and let it burble in shallow bath you made earlier.

Great flavor, moist and tender.

So then you are just braising it... I see no reason why this wouldn't be good for anything. Make sure to reserve the juices at the end for stock/gravy.

The name reminds me of "trash can turkey" (still my favorite way to cook a whole turkey).

More of a braising process than basting.

But now I have to know how the heck you cook trash can turkey?

Burn out a galvanized trash can (or find one that is not galvanized). Put a piece of re-bar in the ground. Line and wrap it with foil (enough to extend past the diameter of a trash can). Stand turkey up on re-bar (or a couple stacked). Cover with upside down trash can. Put as much charcoal as you can on top of the trash can (get in tight to seal the edges of the can good). Put the rest of a bag of charcoal around the edge of the trash can. Light both piles. Let cook for approx 4 hours depending on the size of the bird(s). Carefully remove charcoal (with shovel of course) and can. Eat! It works great for cooking onsite (construction, masonry, etc). Save the can in your truck for the next cook.

You can also start a fire around the stand and burn down to coals. Rake coals back, place bird and can, bank coals on side of can and top. This will cook a little faster as the ground under the can is pre heated and the missed coals will give up some smoke in the can.

You can also use a burned out drum if worried about galvanized. Think homage Orion cooker.
