Default What's your turkey recipe this year?

I'm doing a spatchcock citrus herb butter turkey in the Traeger this year...................

Brine in salt/brown sugar/herbs/orange/lemon mixture for 24 hours, then split it open (spatchcock), rub herb butter under the skin, sprinkle with pork/poultry seasoning on the outside for prep.

Place turkey on top of bed of onion/carrots/celery/sliced orange/sliced lemon/fresh herbs in a roasting pan.

Cook on smoke for 1 hour, then finish at 350 deg..........

(see Traeger website for recipe, mine is slightly modified)

yum yum.....

Trying a pre-brined bird from Trader Joe's this year. Probably just roast it unimaginatively in our tiny English oven. Mashed taters with scallions, green bean casserole and this cornbread stuffing side should help.

I like to halve a lemon and place it under the skin on the top nearest the thickest part of the bird.

Bill, brining is the ONLY way to go when I do any poultry, and I have converted quite a few coworkers to this idea. I'd say next time, just get a regular bird and brine it yourself! Aside from the salt, I do some oranges, spices, pep corns, fish sauce (trust me) and a few other things, all into a 5 gallon bucket for 48 hours. And if you are doubtful, ask any of the guys over on WestFly to my "cheffing" abilities! Major points are basically bird fully thawed and cool brine if heating it up to dissolve salt. I use regular table salt and it needs no heat to dissolve into the water.

S.C.I.

Did this for my church feast this past Sunday. James Gang game bird seasoning rubbed on the day before, then on my Louisiana Grill @ ~260° until temp in the right places reached 165°(~4.5hrs).

SCI, I brined a bird several years back when I had a larger refrigerator. I agree it makes for a superior turkey.

Hunter, that spatchcocked bird is a work of art!

We will again continue our tradition of having a Spanek roasted turkey because there is no messing with perfection!

Use the turkey-sized Spanek vertical roaster
Rub turkey with olive oil
Rub turkey with Montreal seasoning
Roast

And you are done. Simple and produces a consistently awesome turkey.

Savory Brined Turkey injected with garlic butter

Smoked on the Traeger Pecan pellets 1st hour 350, down to smoke for 2 hours and adjust as necessary as dinner draws near. I also limit the size of the bird to 12-14# and do two of them.

Jeff, your spatchcocked bird looks absolutely scrumptious.
I may try the recipe in the November/December issue of Cook's Illustrated.
Instead of brining, you rub salt under the skin and let it work its magic for 24-48 hours. To get an even cook, you preheat the roasting pan on top of a pizza stone to 500. You sprinkle baking powder on top of the breast skin (to assure a crisp brown), cover with breast with double foil, then put the bird in and turn the temp down to 425 for 45 minutes, then pull the foil and reduce temp to 325 until you get 160 degrees in the breast meat and 175 in the thigh.
Whole idea is to have white and dark meat done at the same time to avoid drying out the breast meat. Pizza stone keeps the heat on the back of the bird.
Also splurged and ordered a fat separator from Amazon. Will make it super easy to make heart-healthier gravy.

I pretty much follow the Traeger Citrus Herb Turkey recipe.........

http://www.traegergrills.com/recipes...-citrus-turkey

My modifications are...

Brining turkey:
- To measure how much brine you need, I put the wrapped turkey in my food safe container (purchased at Cash & Carry) then add water to cover the entire bird. Remove the turkey and that will give you the measurement of how much brine you'll need to make. Amounts will vary depending on the size of the bird. I brine my bird in the container in my gaage refrigerator over night by just removing a shelf or two.

- I make my brine up the night before and put it in the refrigerator over night so it's cold when I add the turkey the next day. Make brine on Tuesday night and put in refrigerator, put bird in brine Wednesday night, rinse/prep/cook bird on Thursday.........

Cooking turkey:
- I put a few orange and lemon slices in the base that the turkey cooks on in the pan. It adds a nice citrus element to the gravy made from the drippings. The gravy was a huge hit last Thanksgiving, I'll make more quantity this year.

- I don't brush the outside with olive oil. I lightly coat the outside with some of the herb butter and sprinkle with Traegers pork/poultry rub. I don't use any salt or pepper as the pork/poultry rub has enough flavor.

- I run my Traeger on smoke for the first hour or so of cooking time, then I turn it up to the 350 deg. temp to finish cooking. This adds a bit more smokey flavor to the meat.

Herb butter:
- I don't use their seasoning recipe. I just mix the butter with some herb de provence seasoning from the store and the garlic.

A couple tips:
- Don't let it overcook, check regularly so you don't go over the 170 deg. breast meat temp. I did a 22# turkey last year and it was done in about 3-3 1/2 hours, this style cooks fairly quickly.

-If the turkey starts to get over brown just cover it with some foil.

- I let mine rest under foil on a cutting board for about 15-20 minutes before I carve.

That's all I got, it's a really easy recipe to follow, and it puts out a really nice tasting turkey (and gravy).............

Enjoy

Gonna have to try that Spatchcocked method next

Yesterday I did something a little different than the usual. I had a 14lb bird I also had the Weber brand "beer can chicken" seasoning. I melted 1 cube of butter and added some of the seasoning and a tablespoon of lime juice simmered for about ten min. I used an injector and went to town on the bird. poured what little remained on bird and rubbed all over then added more dry seasoning as well. Baked (covered) for about 3 hrs @ 325 when the breast read 165 on the thermometer. I pulled it and left it covered for about 30 min. It was probably the best turkey we have had PERIOD !! Every yr it seems I'm trying different ways and I've done a bunch But this one was simple and tasted amazing !!

That's a beautiful bird!
Ours came out moist and flavorful, if plain.
Used my new fat separator to make great-tasting giblet gravy.

+1 for spatchcock. I've turned many people onto a simple salt/sugar brine or apple juice/salt/other stuff brine plus spatchcock grilled bird. Smoke or no smoke, they are all good. My buddies son never cared for turkey until he had a brined bird.

I'm not cooking this year but will probably pick one up on sale the New Years

Jeff, I'm going to Crock-pot a turkey breast today. Supposed to be incredibly moist, and, resting on two halves of an onion and two halves of a head of garlic for the 7-hour soak, it allegedly makes killer drippings for gravy. At the end of the cook, you slip it under the broiler for a couple of minutes to crisp up the skin.

A little bit late posting, but here's one I did in my Louisiana grill. I did not brine, I placed Herb butter all over under the skin, rubbed the outside with olive oil and sprinkled on my herb blend. 1 1/2hrs @ 175°, bumped the temp to 325° until internal breast temp hit 168°, pulled out and let rest wrapped with foil for 30min. Yum

Looks great................

Next time try cooking it on a bed of rough cut carrots, celery, sweet onion, with a can of low sodium chicken stock............

Really helps with keeping everything moist and adds flavor as well. The veggies are wonderful as well.............

Have to know, how do you guy's that put stuff under the skin get the skin back on for cooking? I've never had a wild turkey but seem's people either love it or hate it. Friend of mine years ago gave me a recipe for wild goose. Take one wild goose and brine it 24 hrs. Then put your favorite spices on it and stuff the cavity with dressing. Put it on a plank and cook for two hours. Remove the bird and scoup out the dressing. Throw away the bird and dressing and eat the plank!

Those thing's have started coming through my place this year. Probably try one one day. If all else fails, I can grind it up, mix with chicken manure and use it for fertilizer!

To put my herb butter mix under the skin, I make a small hole in the membrane between the skin and the breasts and thighs. I take about a golf ball sized amount of herb butter and shove it in. Then I use my hands or a wooden spoon to massage it around from the outside. If I need more I'll repeat as needed. I'm sure there's YouTube video on how to do it as well......

It's almost turkey time again this year and this has been our go-to turkey recipe for quite some time......

Be sure to read through the thread as there's been some really good content that has been added by others as well......

Always turns out great.....

A little hint, something my wife does......

After you've carved your turkey don't throw out the carcass. Put in a plastic bag once cooled and in the refrigerator. The next day or two my wife will boil it in a big stock pot and strain off the broth. Having been cooked in the Traeger the broth comes out with nice mild smokey flavor. She'll them put it gallon Ziploc bags and freeze. She'll use this stock for turkey noodle soup throughout the year. We also use it as a replacement for the stock in the spatchcock recipe above the next thanksgiving........

Really easy to do.....

I tried to take over Thanksgiving dinner with my awesome enchiladas but got voted off the island.
Only brother in law was with me, and he's an idiot ;-)
So it'll be turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, et al, with pickled herring for the hearty few. Maybe lutefisk if we're lucky.

I'll be putting a turkey on the traeger for the first time this year. I'm pretty excited to see how it turns out.

Beedub, check out Traeger's Spatchcock Citrus Herb Butter recipe (the one I have at the top of this thread. Super easy to do, cooks really fast, and is by far the most moist turkey I've ever made..............It's the only way I Treager my turkey's now.

If you're interested in this recipe, look at post #16. This is the way I do it.......

Which ever way you go, good cookin........and remember, watch those temps.

For all you ever wanted to know about cooking a turkey read “The Thanksgiving Turkey Guide” on the Thermoworks Blog. I’d post a link but I shouldn’t set a bad example by violating the aup, Lol.

I’ll be cooking my little 13 pounder on the Big Green Egg for the first time after several years on the Traeger. If it works out well the Traeger may be going up for sale soon...

I’m trying out a 3 day dry brine for the first time too.

Snapt—we are doing the same thing. I’ve been brining the turkey since yesterday morning, and it’s going on the Big Green Egg tonight. 225 degrees, a mix of pecan, hickory, and apple wood chunks, slow and low, and it should take about 9-10 hours for our 18 pound bird. This is the fourth year that I have done it on the BGE and it always turns out amazing. If done right you will have an incredibly moist turkey with a gorgeous pink smoke ring. Good luck with yours!

Usually do a smoked turkey and an oven roasted turkey but the kids will all be gone this year. I'm going to break tradition and do a citrus brined spatchcocked turkey. Absolutly can't wait to see how it comes out!

Rseas.....

In case you haven't noticed, good choice. My only way I do turkey' s for the holidays. Been doing them this way now for 4 years. If you didn't see in my reply to Beedub above, see post #16 for the way I do them.....

Hope yours turns out wonderful........

Another great turkey, maybe one of my best......

I did a smaller turkey this year, 14#, as we only had 8 people this year. The gravy turned out great as well..........

I hope all your turkey's turned out fantastic.........

I dont or try my best to not buy regular supermarket meats. Every year I get a free range turkey from a farmer guy I know. I also got one for a friend who has bought fred meyer turkeys for the last 20 some years. He called me up and said ' chris, the heart and liver in the turkey you got me are like 3x larger than normal"
Normal??!!!

Our spatchcocked bird was a success. 24 hour swim in a citrus brine and 90 minutes in a 400 degree oven made for a very tasty addition to our Thanksgiving table.

My turkey turn doubt well. It’s a dry brine from now on. My main concern about the BGE was that it is a medium but it was just fine with a 13.5 lb bird and there are plenty of leftovers. So tonight I’m making my post thanksgiving hash. I crisp up the left over stuffing in a big skillet with pieces of dark meat mixed in and a few other leftovers. Then smother with gravy. Yum!

Default What's your turkey recipe this year?

My go to for the last 4 or 5 years:

- salt brine with kosher salt, 1 teaspoon per pound make sure you get some under the skin. Place in fridge for at least 48 hours In plastic bag.

- thanksgiving morning smoke the bird. I use a big chief 5 pans apple chips.

- throw bird in one of those cheap Oster table top roasters. We stuff ours with apple, onions, celery and carrots.

- cook at 350 for roughly 4 hours or until meat temp hits 180 comes out great every time.

We did this with a 25lb bird this year.

I have a question regarding brining a turkey. To those of you that do it, do you use a “normal” store bought turkey that is packaged in a brine solution already and then brine yourself? Or does it have to be a fresh un brined turkey from a butcher or some place? Thanks.
