Take a new steel trashcan, not galvanized, dig a hole slightly larger around than the top of the can, dump a large bag of coals in it (or if you prefer a light wood), let the coals get hot and cover it with about two inches of dirt, then lay down aluminum foil and set a dutch oven in the center, and place your bird on the dutch oven (marinate the bird accordingly beforehand) then put the trashcan over top of it, open end down and line the ground around it with coals, then put hot coals on top of the can (which would actually be the bottom if it were right side up). Let it cook accordingly. If you want you can add either liquid smoke to the inside of the can, or lay woodchips around the dutch oven to add flavor. As the coals under the ground burn away it will suck the can down and create a seal, essentially turning your trashcan into a pressure cooker.

Something I added was a hole in the bottom of the can and placed a one way valve so I can dump marinade into it as it cooks, but doesn't let any of the pressure or flavor out.
Good tip there, but why not just have a big pressure cooker?

So where does one get this one-way valve you described?

We just got home from friends for dinner. The company was excellent and the food was excellent as well. I will head for bed shortly and read for a while before lights out. A very pleasant day.

I made mine. But I guess that you could buy one from one of the many hardware stores.

I'm sick of the juxtaposition of Thanksgiving to Turkey Day. It occurred to me that it's likely that many people no longer actually know why it's called Thanksgiving. Or for that matter, that it ever was.

I wonder if a $3 PCV valve from Autozone would work?

I was thankful for some stuff yesterday (still am): my car is paid off & running well, i have a lot of toys, my cats either love me or chill easily, and my family seems to be doing pretty well health-wise.

Wouldn't PVC melt? You have hot coals all around the can, and placed on top of it.

PCV = positive crankcase ventilation, but some are mostly plastic. Probably wouldn't be the best choice for that heat; you're right.
