New Turkey Recipe

From an e mail. No, we haven't tried this yet. Not sure if we will.

I thought this sounded good! Here is a  turkey recipe that also includes the   use of popcorn as a stuffing  ingredient -- imagine that. When I found this   recipe, I thought it was perfect for  people like me, who just are not sure   how to tell when turkey is  thoroughly cooked, but not dried out.

Give this a try.

8 - 15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing              (Pepperidge Farm is Good)
1 cup un-popped popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER'S LOW FAT IS BEST)
Salt/pepper to taste 
Preheat oven to 350degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt, and   pepper.
Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn.
Place in baking pan making sure the neck end is toward the front of the oven, not the back.
After about 4 hours listen for the popping sounds.
When the turkey's rear end blows the oven door open anthe bird flies across
the room,.... it's done.
               And, you thought I didn't cook...
