There is nothing better than a sizable turkey simmering away in the oven.
The aromas are heaven sent & the look on people’s faces as it emerges from the oven reminds me of Pavlov’s cats after that bell rings. The concern is that it takes too long to cook it thoroughly. My solution was to get a new convection oven that shortened the cooking time significantly as that fan in the oven bathes the parakeet with waves of circulating overheated air. But then a spine-chilling thought entered our mind. If those convection currents can cook that turkey to a brown perfection, what is happening to me as I conserve energy by using a fan instead of the a/c on a overheated Summer morning? As it turns out, our fears are justified in two ways. The first way is when the temperatures are hot, & the air is humid. When the relative humidity reaches a particular level, the body cannot cool itself as swiftly through sweat. This can lead to heatstroke, cramps, & organ failure unless a cooler locale can be found. With overheated dry air, a minute threat emerges when the outside temperature exceeds normal body temperature. That is when you are enjoy that turkey in a convection oven as the air from the fan dehydrates your skin & heats up what is underneath it. So, it’s okay to use a fan at 74°F, however you will need your Heating & A/C component running at full blast if the temperature gets above 100°F. To make sure that your Heating & A/C can handle the added burden, people are suggested to get their Heating & A/C systems ran tests on by a qualified Heating & A/C supplier before the “cat afternoons” of September turn you into a roasted “turkey”.
