Comments: A Mini-Feast


The problem with stuffing in the bird is that the stuffing is only done when the bird is all dried out. If you preserve the bird's moisture then the stuffing is not up to the temperature zone where it's fully cooked. Since it's been in contact with the raw bird, you're playing with salmonella.

Alton Brown is right - "Stuffing is evil!" Dressing is good eats.

What does a silly scientist know? I never realised you were on the wrong side of the fence on this one...

Anyway, my bird has never made me sick and it's always nice and juicy. The stuffing keeps it juicy in fact. And I use a thermometer to make sure it gets hot enough.

So there.

Careful, or thou wilt arouse The Wrath of the Sister-In-Law.

My sister-in-law is lovely and I'm sure she would never get mad at me simply because I stated publicly that she's wrong...I mean, that we have a difference of opinion regarding the safety of stuffed birds!

As I say, though - it's an emotional issue!

(And it was a great Thanksgiving dinner, Kurt - hope this doesn't put us on the uninvited list from now on!!)
