We do not have a working oven. We do have a large roaster we can use as an oven. We are going to processes a few birds sometime today and I am open to suggestions on cooking them. I do not have any bacon at this point but could get some. Our fist batch tasted good but were a bit tough. I plan on letting these rest overnight in the refrigerator. Other then that I am not sure if I over or under cooked them last time.
