(CNN) – Paul Volcker, former chairman of Federal Reserve and an economic adviser to President-elect Barack Obama, knows a thing or two about turning out a tasty Thanksgiving turkey.
Volcker shared his tips with CNN on Thursday and said his secrets include port wine and strips of bacon.
Obama mentioned Volcker’s turkey prowess at a news conference Wednesday when the President-elect told reporters that Volcker and fellow Obama economic aide Austan Goolsbee both have “special turkey cooking recipes if anyone needs some advice on how to make the ideal turkey.”
Volcker and Goolsbee were named Wednesday to head up a new economic recovery board Obama is creating as part of his incoming administration’s effort to turn around the economy which has been in crisis since mid-September when the nation’s credit markets and financial system seized up.

BUT .. WHERE IS THE RECIPE????
Only a Democrat would even add PORK to turkey!
Ever hear of Spell-check. Try making your comments match your intelligence.......OH My
You are an absolute fool!!!
I'm glad our President and his team are not so up tight about the mess we're in. It gives me confidence that we will survive this trial. This is not a famine, but a time for true followers of Christ to step up and help out, stop looking to man to be our problem solver.
Obama is probably against the bacon.....being muslim and all.
slow news day?
Griff...guess your doctors off today?? You could use a session but I doubt he could really help you with your hatred and cynicism
Bacon? I guess that kills off the notion of Obama being a secret muslim. No self respecting muslim, secret or otherwise would ever recommend using bacon in a meal.
grow a brain and then maybe your posting will make sense.
I wonder what people would be saying if an article like this was put out about someone on the the bush admin
Would everyone be so positive about it
I think not
Sounds and looks absolutely delicious. Good for you, Mr. Volcker! Bacon and port are excellent in combination with poultry, and it looks beautifully crispy. I'm with Klee. Thrilled to bits you'll be part of an incredible team.
How would the biggest turkey in America, Rush Limbaugh, fix his own turkey?
We have used bacon for ever on our turkey....but we always drank the wine.....too bad they do not tell us how he used the Port Wine.
From one turkey to another.
OMG-he invited Sarah Palin for Thanks giving – she's looking good
This holiday season give America a gift and report on how secret societies and unelected people from "think tanks" are adversly affecting our country and how they continue to put Americans in harm's way all over the world.
