I've had varying degrees of gravy success over the years, and mentioned as much in my story about a turkey fryer in today's Food & Wine section. Several readers gravy gurus jumped to my aide.

Ron Coates, of Sacramento, said the solution is a cool one: if you see lumps forming, whisk the gravy and add a handful of crushed ice.

"The lumps will just disappear," he said.

Another reader called claiming to have a lump-proof gravy recipe. I've left her a message and am hoping to hear back. Stay tuned: if she agrees, I'll reprint her recipe here.
