I'd say about 375. Pour in the water, cover the roasting pan in foil, and let it go. To me, it's just a simpler process than trying to manipulate my glasstop stove. If used a gas cooktop, it might be different.


Good point. As an alternative to this, you could use a turkey deep fryer rig and do it outside over propane flame.

I've mainly seen this method on "Triple D" when the stovetop space is a premium, and they can fire and forget a hotel pan full of bones & veggies.

The stock from turkey number one (a hen) turned out really good, very rich and flavorful. I have froze 8 cups so far, and I have about four cups to go. Is that what you guys normally yield (12 cups)? I also saved the cooked meat.

Bird number two (a jake) is in the stock pot right now, and I just got the call. My source has two more (both gobblers).

You mean measuring cups? Seems like I usually get ~8 (6 to 10) 24 oz mason jars of stock from a gobbler. You may have it more concentrated than mine, though.

Just finished the last two birds. So far this week, I have processed four turkeys (hen, jake, and two gobblers). I was given everything except the breasts. I put six legs and thighs in the freezer. I cooked the carcasses down for stock and saved the cooked carcass meat. From the four birds, I got 85 cups of stock and four quart sized bags of cooked meat.

The 32 quart pot I bought allowed me to cook both gobblers at once. However, in doing this, I discovered that your standard electric stove top is not designed to handle a full 32 quart stock pot as I crushed one burner.

It was really interesting to do a hen, jake, and gobbler in the same week. This gave me a chance to observe the skeletal structure of each bird. I am even more impressed by how gobblers are "built." They truly are amazing birds.

My wife just gave me the green light for an all day foray on Saturday so I may have more to add to the freezer.

That's a lot of foul.
