Trash can turkey

The method of cooking a trash can turkey has recently come to my attention. I figured I would give it a try, since the video seemed very easy to do. Although the more I read online it seems no one really knows hot to do this. Some people say it takes one hour, some say two. Some say 20lbs of charcole some say 40.

Some say the trash can will kill you, while some say use a metal or aluminum can only. I've decided that every time I had a question on my Jeep it gets solved by you guys on here. I figured someone would know the answers and look there is a cooking section.

So who has used this method before? and tell me the real way to do it.

Thank you

Use metal preferably bare steal you still need to burn it before cooking anything in it. Burning it will help to remove any toxic substances from manufacture or in the metal itself. Never cooked a trash can turkey so can't help you with that part.

Works great. If you want a dedicated product to use get thr Orion cooker. It's based on the same principal and is stainless steel
