   Jofel posted on Computers &Tech Issues  Did anyone log onto Lucianne on Sunday morning and find a posting on the Must Reads about computer issues? I saw it and it was concerning Firefox and perhaps other computer issues, issues that I was having I went back later to read it and it was removed I'm still having problems with Firefox and also Google Chrome. Would you please inform me as to what that was all about! Thanks

   Tulsa  I searched archives for Sunday and found no articles.

I also used 'search' for Google, Chrome, Firefox and found no results.

I stay away from google and chrome. Firefox has many safety features. It's possible yours are set too high or it's possible the programs are fighting.

Do a web search for your pc problem and read each hit in your spare time. Make your search a question with a question mark. Be tenacious and you'll find an answer. Also try the 'help' icon for each search engine. If that fails, call a tech.

Best wishes.

   Jofel posted on Recipes  Hi Everyone: I saw on the internet, I thought it was here on how to bake a turkey by placing in the oven @ a high temperature for a certain amount of time, then turn off the oven and leave the turkey in the hot oven overnight. Would someone please advise me on the proper temp., etc. Thanks!

   BirdsNest  I don't know about this method, but I sure would not try it because of the possibility of food poisoning. It is simple enough to use an overnight low temp method to be sure that bird is cooked properly. As the oven cools down it will put the bird at risk of bacteria. Me? I wouldn't do it.

   Gerty  I am in total agreement with Miss BirdsNest---too risky for bacterial growth.

   Nugoddess  Yeah, I gotta agree with above posters. Salmonella is just not something you want to risk.

Alton Brown has the recipe I use for roasting turkey:

I brine my turkey and Alton's advice and techniques (included on this website ) are the reason I have had so much success.

   Jofel  Thank you all for the warning, I kind of wondered about bacteria. Also, I have used the Alton Brown's method of brining the turkey. So am doing that again, we have our Thanksgiving/Christmas party on Saturday the 18th, and the turkey is in the brine at the moment.
Isn't Alton a hoot?

   BirdsNest  I still remember the food poisoning I got from a turkey club sandwich when I was in college. Four of us ate at the snack bar and we all got sick. It was a bad night.

   Yottyhere  Here is a recipe to cook the bird at high heat overnight.

I have never cooked one this way but I know a couple people who swear by this method and have used it for years........

To each his own I reckon :D I also know a guy who bastes his turkey non-stop with dark red wine....again to each his thinking is why waste all that wine on a ole turkey??? (People have said that about Nu and I thought it was pretty mean ;P )

   Escaped commieny  Here's an alternate, high heat method. I couldn't sleep with the oven on. We use 500 degrees for the moistest turkey ever:

   Mrs Wrightwinger  We've baked a turkey over night for years. Cover the top with butter. Put a foil tent over the top (but not touching the turkey ). Might have to put a fold in the foil. Make sure the foil is crimped to the edges of the roaster you're using and bake a 250 degrees. The only bad thing is that if you wake up in the middle of the night it smells so good. When you open it in the morning it will be so tender the legs will fall off. You can remove the foil, baste, and bake a little longer if you want the skin browner.

   Pineledger  There's another Overnight In the Oven recipe I have heard of but never tried:

5# sirloin tip roast
Sprinkle with "Jane's Krazy Mixed-up Salt" [a Southern thing, but available on Amazon]

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Put in roast. Cook for 5 minutes, then turn off oven. Do not open. Let it cook overnight, undisturbed.

Supposedly the meat turns out just right including a medium rare center.
