Have you ever cooked a turkey in a pressure cooker?
I have this turkey here, and a pressure canner (15 PSI) it fits in, and it occurs to me that this would be a good way to cook the turkey.

Does anybody have any guidelines for this?

2. I Don't See Any Reason Why Not
Keep in mind that the bird will likely fall apart when removing it from the pressure cooker.

3. Which is fine.
Because I dismember it and freeze most of it right after cooking.

4. Let Us Know how It Turns out
I seldom buy a whole turkey except at Thanksgiving, preferring to purchase only turkey breast at other times, but I use this simple recipe year-round:

1 whole turkey breast
1 stick butter

Place both in crock pot. Set on high. Do not disturb for the rest of the day. Beyond wonderful.

7. I shall.
I usually buy parts, too. The turkey was a gift...

5. How well does it fit in? It must be a small turkey. One problem you
may encounter if it's a real tight fit is that the turkey may block the release hole and the pot could blow up. If there is lots of room between the turkey and the hole, it should work.

As for cooking times, figure out how long it would normally take a turkey of that size to cook and try 1/3 or 1/4 times. Then check to see if it's done.
