2016, Oct 6-9: Fall NOG - Northern Oregon Gathering

As a group we had decided to go to Cape Lookout. Saturday (1/9) Kathie (Dave&Kathie) and I took a day road trip to the park. Most of it is closed for the season, so we first drove around and looked several times, then walked what was closed. The only loops that would be suitable for a NOG were A and B loops, all tent sites, no services. But, we thought it would work. Yesterday I found out the state closes those loops on Sept. 30. There were no other sites in the open loops that would hold the Friday night gathering or pot luck. All the sites are small, most are in the trees and dark. While I may camp at Cape Lookout in the future, we won't be holding a NOG there.

So since everyone wants to go back to the beach, the Fall NOG is headed to Nehalem Bay State Park (Manzanita area). 95 miles west of Portland on Hwy 101. We were last there in the fall of 2013.

Once you make reservations (or have questions) feel free to post here, the CasitaForum or the EscapeForum... please don't post the same info in all three places... I have a short memory .

Nehalem Bay State Park rates are $29 for electric & water per day. Make reservations through ReserveAmerica or call ReserveAmerica at 1-800-452-5687 (during regular business hours).

As usual, I'll keep a park map updated and a list of participants going for those that have made reservations on the CasitaForum. I've chosen site A14.

We'll fill in details about the doin's when we get closer to October.

Ready, Set, GO!

I was going to grab that one the other day, as it looked good, but balked because of the path going beside it. I took A17 instead. I doubt it really matters, as fun will be had regardless of campsite.

Go, Jim B's, Go!

Are you going to join us and do the cooking????

Edit: Never mind I see you are. So you had better make it a big Turkey as there will be more than a few Canadian's looking for their Thanksgiving Dinner! ;-)

I'll get the participants listing and map updated as soon as I can. The laptop with ALL the information is in for repairs. Gulp.

Bummer!

Was hopeful would be able to make this one, but find the dates are right in middle of our Utah fall foliage tour.
Hope all have a great time!!

I was notified over the weekend that the folks in A32 will need to cancel. This is was one the largest sites in A loop and one of the easiest sites to back into... if you feel challenged. So, if anyone wishes to changes sites or needs a site, let me know via PM and I'll put you in touch with the cancelling folk!

The same vat of frying oil will cook several turkeys, sequentially (not simultaneously). In my experience, an 11 lb bird fries in about an hour and 15 minutes...

I missed all this because I've been ignoring this thread - 'til today. We NOGged last year, but knew that was a one shot deal (we picked up our new Escape from Chilliwack BC, the Friday before, which put us in the Ft. Stephens SP neighborhood at just the right time). Now that I see y'all are talking turkey frying, my hub says "I could be persuaded to go."

I often do up a couple turkeys in succession. I find that a bird near 15 lbs will fry in about an hour at 350°. I do ramp up the oil to about 425° before dropping the bird in, so that it recovers to 350° quickly.

I love injecting the turkey too. Something with a bit of a spice and a butter base if my favourite, like a butter creole.

My presence, even though registered, at the Fall NOG is still up in the air. I was hoping to bring my new 2017 Escape 5.0TA, but may not have it in time. If I pull my temp stickie down there, I might get scorned.

Maybe you have a larger kettle than we have. We cook them at 315-325F, so they're not done as quickly... And I think 12 lbs is the largest we've ever fried.

We don't inject. We rub the skin with cayenne, most of which falls off (and infuses the oil).

But that's okay. It's YOUR Thanksgiving! Fry 'em how you like 'em!

This is a shot of me from Easter 2005 with a turkey. You can see the size of my fryer. I still use the same one. 15 lbs is the limit, but I have done down to 12 lb ones too for about 45 minutes. I have been frying turkeys for about 15 years now, doing 4-6 a year.



I have tried rubs, something I love to do when smoking meat, but like you say, most of it was lost and had little effect on the flavour, so now I only inject. Everybody just loves the fried turkey. If there is any left over from the main part of the meal, we just leave it out, and everyone nibbles at it until it is gone.

Between times I fry, after filtering the oil, I put it in the freezer to stop it from going bad once all the food bits are in it.
