Has anyone ever tried cooking an entire turkey in the crockpot? It's been in the stand-alone freezer for about 7 months old so I'd like to hurry up and use it. If I can cook it in the crockpot, do I need to add water or seasonings to it?

I want to just cook the meat, and then come up with ideas for it. I know part of it will become sandwich meat.

Dang! How big is your crockpot?

I would look for a recipe for cooking a chicken and kind of go from there. I would definitely add spices and some onions, garlic and celery. I think you would need to add water, I'm not sure how much though. HTH

I found a recipe for Turkey in a crockpot. Here This recipe calls for a 6lb. turkey. Instead of stuffing it w/ stuffing, I would stuff it w/ the veggies and spray Olive Oil on top, season w/ salt and pepper, and whatever other spices you like, and cook for the time stated.
