+1 on Alton Brown. I'm 27 and can cook pretty much any meat I come across- I got into it all through Alton Brown.

Poultry on the bone is worth it, imo, because it's a whole lot easier to get a juicy, flavorful product. You can also get a whole chicken really cheap and feed yourself for a few days with it.

You said a mouthful there! They really need to bring fundamental life skills back to our schools. Some good places to start would be cooking fundamentals, basic automotive skills (I'm amazed how many people have NO IDEA how to change a tire!) and how to file a simple tax return.

I agree with the Alton Brown suggestion. He really demystifies cooking, and makes it very entertaining as well.

I took cooking classes at school. It gave me a foundation. Plus my Grandma and Mum bother made real food.

I think the last 20 year has seen too many ready meals and Corporations making prfit from food.

next time you try a turkey just empty the cavity,gizzards,neck etc. put the bird in the pan on some whole carrots(peeled). add one beer of choice(i like either boston lager or a balanced apa) cover with foil or pan lid set oven for 325 and roast for about 1/2hr/pound. with 30-45 min left uncover and baste with juices in pan, leave uncovered and finish till internal temp is 160-170. carve and enjoy

Case in point: SWMBO had never filed one before we got engaged.

I've been thinking I should take a class at the local community college. I'll definitely give Alton Brown a shot too. I've never watched his show due to not watching TV often enough, but it sounds good.

Orfy, guess what my mom mostly cooks? Lasagna, meatloaf, casseroles, boneless skinless chicken breast....... sounds like my list

GOD there's that cavity word again! Ew!

Thanks again for helping my dumb a$$ through this.

Maybe start with a chicken first? Roasting is fairly easy to do and can yield tasty results. My husband was not cracked up about whole bone-in chicken until i started cooking for him... Come to think of it there were a lot of things that he refused to eat before he met me.
Has your SWMBO tried smoked shoulder? My husband hates ham but loves smoked shoulder!
There are a lot of evening classes at our local Vocational High School that cover a few dozen cooking related topics. I took a bread class (it was a little basic for me) and had a wonderful time!
