We all love to cook on here, but it doesn't always go our way. Wanted to hear some others worst cooking experience. Mine was the first Christmas with my inlaws. My Father in law isn't a slouch in the kitchen, but I am confident in my abilities since my background was in the kitchen and he always found a way to dry out the turkey. I told my Father in law I would do the turkey since the meal was going to be at our house and he agreed. I had found a Emril inject recipe online about a month before Xmas that I thought would be really good. The recipe called for one teaspoon of crab boil, but I thought I would kick it up a natch and double it to 2 teaspoons. As Xmas got close I pulled out my recipe and went to put together my inject and saw that the recipe called for 2 teaspoons, but I thought I would kick it up a natch and doubled it to 4. Save to say I had forgot I had already kicked it up a natch a month earlier. The day before Xmas I found out that my Father in law was going to bring his own turkey because he can be hard headed alot of the time. I was super pissed that he was stepping on my toes, but I took great joy knowing my turkey would run laps around his fried dried up bird. When I cut into my bird it was a dark brown and completely unedible. Everyone else ate the fried turkey while I ate my crab boil turkey. To this day whenever I make anything he reminds me about my turkey.
