Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Fun question how are you cooking your turkey?

I am doing mine on the pellet grill. I slice an orange and apple and put the slices under the skin then the rest in the cavity. Put it on smoke for an hour, I leave it open in the aluminum pan while smoking. Then I cover it with aluminum foil and wrap it tight to the pan, turn it up to 300 and let it grill till done. Very juicy and tender.

Have in the past done the deep fried, trash can, baked, bagged in the oven. Have done the both brined and not brined. Always interested in learning new ways.

Sounds good just did some fresh trout in the Kamodo Joe stuffed with lemon onions and pecan chips for smoke outstanding. Turkey today with butter mixture under the skin and on top with lemon and onions inside wrapped in bacon looks good see how it taste

Well I like to brine all turkeys, I have one in the oven brined all night, stuffed apples , oranges onions and celery inside, and another on the smoker with the same set up.
They stay moist and tender when you brine them , never a dry turkey.

Well change in plans now. I got the turkey out of the fridge and pulled it out of the sealed bag and this thing did not smell good at all. So now seeing if any of the stores that are open have fresh turkey available. If not looks like we will be eating dinner out this year. We called Butter Ball and they said do not eat it if it smells funny. Ahh another Thanksgiving story.

We cheated this year. Our favorite B-B-Q place has killer smoked turkey. We loaded up there along with a bunch of other B-B-Q and took it home for a feast. Yum.

Man.... my brain works in mysterious ways at times..... saw "convention oven" and immediately thought about that old School House Rock song - Conjunction Junction!

Went to our daughters today and it was amazing. Walked in the door and started eating her Turkey. Visited with all the grandkids and family. We played the Grandparent CARD today. Grandkids, Family, Food, and Drinks. Big Smiles, and hugs then went home. 👍🙏👀🇺🇸🤠

We ended up letting Cracker Barrel do the cooking. They were busy of course but the meal was good. We will be returning the bad one to Costco and grab one from the grocery store and fix it Saturday. Double thanks giving a win win for me.

We're on the back end of a kitchen remodel, so no cooking at this house. No going to relatives because wife and son have cat allergies. Crazy busy putting up our Christmas light display so we went fancy and ate at waffle house! (I had some ham. Does that count? I'll have to ask next time if it was brined or not!) :ROFLMAO: :LOL: :LOL::ROFLMAO:

For most of the last 6-8 years or so, we have fried our turkey in a deep fryer out in the driveway. They have always come out great. A couple of years ago, I "wet" brined the turkey and smoked it after smothering it with maple syrup and a BBQ Rub.

It was good too. This year, I "dry" brined the turkey over night and then smoked it with a Cherry/Maple/Hickory blend. It came out good too.

All were moist, but I'm leaning on liking the deep fryer results better.:)
