Don’t you have an AAA? Why you using poor folk sprayer?

First thing I would do is figure out what tip size it has. Might determine what it’s good for.

Yeah, here’s a guy with a $3500 Graco, and Air Assisted Airless Aerosol cans (AAAAC) to boot… Go figure.

Fill halfway with brine. Insert turkey. Cook at 400 until golden grown.

You forgot about pressurizing it at 15 PSI. Cuts cooking time in half.

I’m not familiar with how to use this type of sprayer but the only time I have seen one used is in a commercial cabinet shop where they were spraying lacquer and it was used almost daily so it seldom needed to be emptied and cleaned up. Cleaning it up between occasional uses would be a real pain.

For normal craftsman use a HVLP or airless sprayer would be more practical.
