Thanksgiving this year will be a unique experience, our oven - as you may remember - is busted. We got an estimate for the repair, and we're still debating the cost of that versus getting a new stove altogether. So that means the turkeys are going to be cooked in the BBQ, and the counter-top roaster. Due to the cooking options available, we're going to do two small turkeys as opposed to one big one, and I've decided to use the opportunity to try out a non-traditional recipe on one of the birds. Found a recipe in Food & Wine for an apple cider glazed turkey with lager infused gravy that sounded really good. Also, a leek and swiss chard gratin recipe that accompanied it, and an apple cider cream pie to go along with the pumpkin.

I LOVE BBQd turkey whatever...........
I think that is an excellent alternative and it will give you additional time to figure out if you want to repair it or
buy another. I chose NOT to repair, too old, or buy another over the range microwave. I realized I was just warming up stuff with my microwave and when I checked the brands and how happy people were with them, NOBODY was happy with any of the over the range microwaves.
Soooooooooooooooo, instead I bought a counter convection/regular oven/broiler/toaster etc. Basically, it does everything but make coffee for me. I use every part of it save for broiler function
Do not want the mess to clean up........I cannot remember last time I used my regular range oven.
