Our trash can turkey for Thanksgiving 2015

For the past few years we have been baking our Thanksgiving turkey in a trash can. Sounds weird and WTF, right? Here it is in pictures:

The turkey has been basted and is ready to be baked.

The turkey has been placed in a wire contraption my husband made out of clothes hangers. This will enable the turkey to be hung on the stake.
