We're having our (belated) Thanksgiving dinner party tonight, to be hosted by HH, our cardiologist friend from Singapore. This year, they let me prepare the turkey. A 10 kg turkey. Big mistake. Never. Ever. Let a crazy endocrinologist prepare the bird. Especially one armed with an 18-gauge needle, syringe and some crazy homemade marinade. It's sitting in the brine right now; stay tuned for the end results. You'll probably read about it in the newspapers.
"22 Foreign Doctors and Family Admitted with Acute Gastroenteritis"Addendum: I know this sounds like I'm boasting, but I swear the bird was the juiciest, tastiest turkey evar! All (almost) 10 kgs devoured by the ravenous indigenous tribe of the Singapolaysians. No mercy was shown.
Soak bird for 12 hours. If you have sadist tendencies, feel free to inject some of that brine into the breast with an 18G needle. Brine 30 mL IM prn.
