What do you use to keep food on a buffet warm?


: If you are using achafing dish (the metal containers buffet food is served in) the best way tokeep it warm is by using Sterno. Sternois a safe, flammable gel that burns at a very low temperature and will stay lit(and keep your food warm) for atleast two hours. It is important to remember to leave atleast2 inches between the top of the Sterno frame and your chafing dish. This will prevent the dish from gettingburned and your food from getting too hot.

Trying to keep large # of hot dogs in buns warm. Do I put water in the roaster before adding the insert containing the hot dogs?


The Owner's Guide for the Rival 18qt Roaster Oven with Buffet Server is available here:

http://www.rivalproducts.com/manuals/MANUALS/RO180BR-C_43_18972586.PDF

See Page 6 for full instructions on use as a buffet server.

You would normally fill the removable roasting pan with 5 to 6 quarts of water ot 1/2 - 3.4 full. Place in the buffet server frame and the empty serving dishes and then preheat at 350 degrees until hot.

Place hot, cooked food in the serving dishes and reduce heat to 250 degree to keep food warm. Adjust the temperature and add more hot water as necessary.

Do I just plug it in and roast the turkey or do I put water in the bottom of the roaster


It doesn't hurt to put a couple of cups of water in the bottom of the roaster, but turn the turkey face down for the first few hours, then turn it right side up for the last hour. All of the juices that would drain to the back stay in the breast making it much more moist. I use a stainless steel dutch oven in the regular oven then uncover and flip in the last hour, and turn on the broiler in the last 10 minutes to crisp the skin. Let it sit for an hour and then carve. Set aside at least 5 hours for a 12-14 pound turkey to preheat, prep, cook, cool, and carve. Add another hour for a turkey in the 18-22 pound range. I usually hand rub the turkey with extra virgin olive oil and dust with black pepper, ground sage, thyme, and some onion and garlic powder. Cram an orange and lemon/lime into the cavity to add some interesting flavor to the bird if you are not stuffing.

Can i cook a 20 lb turkey in a 16 qt rival roaster oven


This is way too big for this roaster, and the one way to do it safely is to cut up the turkey, placing the two leg quarters on the bottom, skin side up, legs to the center and thighs to the side, After 1/2 hour, you put the breast in, skin side up, on top. Use the cooking table and temp for a whole breast from this site:

Can I bake a turkey in a baking bag in my Rival 22Qt Roaster Oven (RO230-C)?


It depends on the size of the turkey, because the bag can't ouch the top, sides, or bottom of the roaster. But the roaster already cooks moist, so the bag may ber overkill.
The Rival manual suggested 375 for pre basted or 350 for fresh 9-14 minutes per pound. In my experience this is too hot. I use 325 for 4 to 4 3/4 hours for an 18 pound turkey. The USDA now uses 165 as the end point temp (down quite a bit from a few years ago), but if you stuff, that has to be in the middle of the stuffing, and the turkey will overcook somewhat while it gets there. All experts agree that turkeys cook better and safer if unstuffed, so considering that you will have to make an extra pan of stuffing to have it for everyone, you would be well advised to cook your turkey unstuffed and use some of the drippings to flavor the pan of stuffing while the turkey rests.

I do not have the book and need to know if I am supposed to pour liquid in the bottom of the roaster when I start the turkey.


No, you never put water between the roaster and the cooking pan/ cookwell/ insert, it actually interferes with the cooking. You can put a little water in the bottom right under the turkey, but the roaster cooks very moist and this is really not necessary.

Check the fit- you need about an inch all around including the top to get good cooking. Any place it touches the sides it will tend to overcook.

I use 325 for 4 to 4 3/4 hours at 325 for an 18 pound turkey; a 21 pounder takes about 35-45 minutes more.

Do i need to wrap my ham in foil to keep the ham moist? can you use foil in the roaster like you can in a oven?


I wouldn't recommend it unless the guide says you can. In a roaster you would add stock of water, or the roast will keep itself moist without foil. No foil needed.

Do you have to put water in the first pan to cook a turkey?


Absolutely not. This is an oven, not a steam table, and water in the main roaster actually interferes with heat transfer. Water in the roaster cooking pan (the inside pan) actually steams the turkey, not a yummy solution.
