    Thank you to everyone who answered all my questions. We butchered on Saturday and everything went perfectly. Here is our first cooked guy.

    Very nice! All of mine so far have become rooster soup. It doesn't photograph very well. [​IMG] -Wendy

    Very well done! If it tasted even half as good as it looks you had a great meal.

    Oh yum.

    The butchering is only the start. Someone who is a good cook makes a big difference, too. That looks perfect.

    Congratulations! Nice lookin' bird.

    I note the lemon around the edge of the plate. Not sure where I picked up on it, but I'm a fan of using the juice from a halved lemon to wet down a bird to help the spices stick o it before roasting, and then toss the remains of the lemon up into the cavity. Without turning out "lemon-y" it puts a nice edge on the drippin's for the gravy.

    Quote:That is what I did. I stuffed it with the lemon and sage, and took it all out after it was cooked.
