    Default Bakery Cooked Birds.

    Bakery Cooked Birds.

    Got lots of turkeys to cook? Oven not large enough?

    A bakery in Philadelphia will cook 'em in their brick ovens.

    You season your bird(s) how you like, drop them off at the bakery and
    they'll bake them up for you for some undisclosed fee. Your birds get
    numbered and you come back later, turn over the matching numbered ticket
    (s) and get your birds back all cooked.

    On FOX local morning news, on camera there were a couple dozen birds foil
    wrapped and additionally wrapped in cellophane all waiting to get picked
    up.

    First I've ever heard of the service. What a great idea! Gives your oven
    lots more space to cook other things!

    They must be huge ovens!

    Have you heard of that? Done that?

    Used to be very common 50+ years ago. Used to be many more local
    bakeries too. Most every bakery in Philly used to do it, I don't know
    about the rest of the country.

    Used to be typical in observant Jewish neighborhoods for sabbath
    cooking.

    Great idea but I would miss the nice smell in the house all day from a
    cooking bird. Did a deep fryed one once and I missed the smell.

    There's a eatery here that does pizza and chicken dishes. They have a
    sign out front that you can order a cooked turkey there. I'm assuming
    that means they season and everything and you order the size cooked
    turkey that you want. Makes sense to me.

    In NYC most delis and caterers will sell roast turkeys already carved
    and put back on the frame, all garnished and presented on a colorful
    cello-wrapped platter.... sold by weight... prices used to be very
    reasonable because they expected to sell you all the sides and fixin's
    too, but I've no idea what they charge nowadays.

    Remembering the size of the oven in the first apartment we had, I can
    imagine that such a service would be well utilized by New York
    urbanites.

    Never heard of that, but yes. Bakeries have huge ovens! That's why
    they are called BAKEries! ;-)

    The bakery in the Suffolk (UK) village where I was raised did this every
    xmas. There was no charge but there was a tip jar. You took the bird, or
    beef joint along with yorkshire pudding and told the baker when you wanted
    to pick them up. It was a long standing tradition. Incidentally, there was
    one old guy in the village who would occasionally make his own bread - but
    he took them to the bakery to have them baked!

    What's done here is that we dig a pit and fill it with wood and rocks
    and light the pit up. When the rocks are heated, you can add your
    turkey or roast and the meats are buried with the hot rock for about 8
    or so hours. I think it costs about 5 buck to have this done. I don't
    like turkey done this way but a pork roast would be fine. 🐷

    As you say it's a very old tradition in Britain, dating back to when poor
    homes didn't have a baking oven or poor people couldn't afford enough
    fuel.

    This was also very common here in France and in my elderly neighbour's
    memory. We have a bake house (now the pool house) which still has
    the oven there. It has a door from our garden and also a door onto
    the lane and villagers would bring their food to be cooked.

    Yes, here in France. We have a brick oven which was used by the
    villagers in what was the bake house but now the pool house for the
    filtration unit. The oven is beautiful, cast iron door and brick
    inside, the roof is a work of art, circular pattern of bricks. My
    elderly neighbour remembers the villagers bringing their food to be
    cooked, for a few coins.

    Here, we have places that will fry your turkey for you. A large family
    will have a baked turkey, fried turkey and a ham at Thanksgiving. For
    Christmas, you just add tamales to that menu.

    My grandfather use to do that with baked beans. the women brought
    their
    bean pots in the morning and picked them up later when they were
    cooked.
    He had a big brick oven in his bakery.

    This morning on TV I heard that you can put a pan of water on the
    stove
    to boil and add all the spices that you use in the turkey or pies.
    And it
    makes the house smell wonderful.

    Before I understood why it was done, I thought it was strange whenever I
    read in a novel or saw a movie about about a certain time in history,
    wherein someone would "bring the turkey" for the Christmas meal. I was
    an adult before I realized that domestic kitchens of the time either had
    no ovens or not enough coal or wood to roast a turkey or goose. It was
    common to take the birds to the bakers to be cooked, and then pick them
    up when they were ready.
