Do not pluck the bird, skin it as it is quicker,
Gut and clean under running water,
Do not hang to ripen as they often escape this way,
Place in large pot and boil for 3 hours,
Drain off water and replace with 1 litre of fresh water
Cover with strips of bacon
Place segments of pumpkin and potatoes around bird
Under no circumstances should the bird be stuffed
Rumour from Que Que area has it that they enjoy this
Place pot in oven for 2 hours at 280 degrees.
Check water level and baste every half hour
When bird is nicely browned remove potatoes and pumpkin
Throw bird out and eat the pot.
The potatoes and pumpkin make excellent ammo for noisy dogs
