    While preparing one of my first turkey dinners, I was in the final stages of browning the bird. It had cooked long enough to be done, but it just wouldn't brown. I decided to turn the pan around, hoping that would help. While sliding the rack out far enough to reach the pan, some of the juices splashed out into the oven. Apparently the lower element was on at the time, because as soon as the juices hit the element a huge blast of flames came roaring about two feet outside of the oven. I quickly pushed the rack back in and slammed the door shut, but not before all of the hair on both of my arms had been burned off and the skin was left a rosy pink. I waited about thirty seconds before peaking into the oven again to see what was left of my turkey. To my surprise, there sat a beautiful, Norman Rockwell like turkey with the skin browned and crisped to perfection. Everyone there was amazed. While the bird looked and tasted most excellent, I promised myself, on the spot, not to use or recommend this process to anyone. I have kept that promise!

    Naw, it was really only a minor tingle. It all happened very fast. Worse part was the smell of burnt hair. Fortunately, this was long, long ago but it's one of those holiday memories that seems to get brought up every year (whether you want it to or not.)
