Turkey in a garbage bin!

This summer my parents made their first turkey and ham in a garbage bin! It was actually a lot of fun, and very yummy!

Here is how they did it! 

First you must burn the chemicals inside the brand new garbage bin for food safety. They started a fire inside the garbage and let it go for the afternoon the day before the cooking event.

Heat up some charcoal, and wrap a metal rod with aluminum foil.

Place aluminium foil on the ground around the rod to make the bottom of the oven.

Attach the turkey legs and wings and slide it down the rod. Place the ham of the turkey on the rod as well.
