    Turkey in July?

    OK so what's wrong with cooking the other other white meat outside of the Holidays? Actually this saga started right before Christmas last year, the SWMBO got a free turkey voucher as a present and proceeds to march down to the grocery store and picks out a nearly 30# bird !!! I mean this velociraptor scared the dog it was so huge. So I says to the wife, "and what exactly am I supposed to do with that?" Wrong question, dirty looks, and a few sarcastic comments later I chuck it into the freezer.

    It's now nearly eight months later and I need to get this beast out of the way of some important things, like more beef !! I slowly thaw it in my beer fridg for a few days then spatchcocked this big moutha. Took a pair of garden shears to get the job done for crying out loud !! Wet brined it with a cup each of salt, brown sugar, 3 lemons halved, 2 oranges halved, some pickling spice and a bouquet garni of fresh herbs for 24 hours.

    Cook day I chopped up a bunch of those same fresh herbs and made a paste using grape seed oil and got out the Oak Ridge Secret Weapon for seasoning....

    ....before seasoning I melted 2 sticks of butter along with some EVOO into a pan and let cool down. I injected it all into the breasts and the upper thigh portions. Took the paste and applied it liberally both top and bottom followed by the Oak Ridge seasoning....all dressed up and ready to go ......

    ....cooked it on my pellet cooker around 330* steady temp to an internal of 165-170* in those big breasts and around 175* in the deep part of the thighs. Used Lumberjack Fruitwood Blend pellets (whatever that is) as the fuel. She came out really nice, took almost 3 hours .....

    Nearly took a cherry picker to get it into the house. Let it rest for about 30 minutes or so then divided into two half bird portions. First half went to some dear friends who helped us out with some dog sitting. The second half, well, seems no one was particularly interested in a big turkey feast in July so the rest is pretty much going to be left overs and late night munchies !!!

    Got hungry last night and needed a sammie so carved off some of that football sized breast. Stuff was really quite tender and juicy. Almost forgot how good smoked turkey really is ......

        I love turkey .... any time of the year. I usually cook a couple turkeys every summer .... and I do turkey breast fairly often and turn it into sandwich meat.

        that’s a damn fine looking bird and cook!

          Big Bird! Turkey tetrazzini is coming to mind. And it can be frozen afterwards.

                Nice job on that beast! I do turkey breasts all year long. As a matter of fact I'm doing about 12lbs next weekend for a family get together. Grape seed oil is a good call. I use it all the time on the flat top due to it's high smoke point.

                    So what if it's July? I'm smoking 2 turkey breasts in the PBC along with a dozen sausages as we speak. Already made the trimmings: stuffing (the meaty kind with regular bread and cornbread combined with pulled chicken thighs, sage sausage, onions, celery, spices, butter, and homemade smoked chicken broth), cranberry sauce, fried apples, mashed potatoes, bacony green beans. Sliced an heirloom tomato out of someone's garden (local farm market) just for a bit of color and because it's summer and because I can.

                    Turkey breast on the PBC rocks unless you're a leg/thigh person. In which case go whole hog, er, whole turkey.

                    Beauty of a cook, Troutman . Enjoy those sammies. Yummy yum yum.

                        Thanks for all the comments gang !!! I'm just one of those guys who really doesn't much like turkey. The dark meat is pretty good, but once a year at the holidays is about enough for me. Never-the-less, the business of smoking turkeys can be quite lucrative

                          Good food should be enjoyed whenever, regardless of day or time of year. If it's in season (and meat always is) it's the right time.

Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

                          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                          the good one grill

                          The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                          Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
