Christmas Turkey as Smoked in the Bradley Smoker   

Make the Christmas dinner a little more adventurous this year by smoking your turkey in the Bradley Smoker, not only will the meal be delicious you also make the whole meal easier to prepare as the oven is not tied up all day cooking the turkey. Allow the turkey to rest for at least 1 hour before carving, or smoke it the day before and serve cold with hot gravy. The carcase and neck can be boiled with onion leek carrot and celery and a bottle of cheap red wine and a litre of water to make a great stock, strain and skim away any fat add a slurp of sherry, season to taste and thicken with a spoonful of corn flour mixed in a little cold water.

The recipe here is for a small turkey. The crown breast, still attached to the bone, is smoked separately from the legs and wings. If you wish to do a larger turkey it will take longer to smoke - approximately an hour per kilogram. After the first three hours check the meat regularly. When ready the skin will be a deep golden brown and feel firm to the touch.

The Brine  1 teaspoon sea salt
 1 dessert spoon brown sugar
 1 teaspoon coriander seeds

Dissolve the salt and sugar in a little hot water in a large mixing bowl or clean plastic container. Fill with cold water and chill for half an hour before use.
 
Place the turkey in the brine and keep chilled for 24 hours.

Remove from the brine and arrange the pieces on a rack from the smoker place on a roasting tin. Leave for the pellicle to form the sealing glaze for about 2 hours.

Preheat the Bradley Smoker to 130 deg c and hot smoke the turkey for 3-4 hours. The flavour of bisquette used is a matter of choice.

Check after 3 hours. The skin will be a rich golden brown, the wings and thighs may be coked before the breast.

Remove from the smoker and allow to stand for at 1 hour. This allows the meat to “rest”. In fact the meat improves by being left for 24 hours before serving.
 
The Turkey  1  Turkey 3.8 Kg
 Bradley Flavour bisquettes (9 - 12) 

With a sharp filleting knife, carefully cut the leg away from the breast. Pull the leg away from the carcass and cut through where the thigh bone meets the carcass. Repeat with the other leg and then the wings.

Take the back of the carcass and break away from the breast bone, reserve all bones for stock. Alternatively ask your butcher to do this for you.
 

Bradley Smoker Features in Heaven's Kitchen at Large
   
 The Bradley Smoker has certainly made an impact on TV chef Mike Robinson, who regularly uses the Bradley Smoker Original at his gastro-pub, the Pot Kiln, the focus of the TV series Heaven's Kitchen at Large currently showing on UKTV Food. So much so that Mike's Game and Wild Food Cookery School have now become authorised dealers for the Bradley Smoker in Berkshire.
