How To Cook A Turkey Using NASA Equipment

Posted By on Wed, Nov 21, 2012 at 11:45 AM

The fine folks over at Gizmodo know that, after a while, simply roasting a turkey is boring. And after a while, the novelty of deep-frying a bird fades like so many clear bills of cardiovascular health from your physician.

So what do you do then? Well, if you've got an Antares-class rocket engine, you do this:

Here's an excerpt from the article at Gizmodo:

What you need:
One turkey.
One Antares-class sounding rocket
Extra fuel

One structure of brick or stone to protect the bird and store heat, as well as the possibility of placing your turkey offset from the main stream (unless you want to solve the problem of distributing bits of cooked turkey to a broadly dispersed audience as quickly as possible.)

Instructions
1. Get the turkey in the protective box.
2. Fire the rocket engine for 1:45 hours. That's it.

For the rest of ideas collected from NASA personnel by Gizmodo, head over here post-haste; and if you happen to cook your turkey in an incredible (yet safe!) way this Thanksgiving, let us hear about it—or if you're feeling generous, let us watch the footage—so we'll have something to enjoy and share while we recover from our feasting.
