"Best Turkey Ever"......
« on: November 28, 2008, 04:18:41 am »
 ;D  It's  all I heard yesterday form my guests !!  I made 5 turkeys yesterday - the biggest hit was the smoked then deep fried bird (no left overs from that one either).   Thank you for the assistance in making it too !!   I smoked it with apple for 4 hours at 120 degrees and then deep fried it in peanut oil at 325 degrees for one hour.  I owe all the thanks to this forum for the wonderful assistance in making it happen !!

The second favorite bird was simply deep fried in peanut oil - no seasoning, after that it was the oven bird.....then the seasoned birds, but people were mostly speeaking about the smoked/fried.  thanks !!!    ;D ;D ;D

Sounds great as well as a good eat! I tried a new recipe this year for my whole turkey- brined it for two days in a spicy brine and then made a spicy citrus marinade for one day then smoked for about 4 hrs with apple wood at a temp of  300-350 F. That one didn't go in the BS since I can't achieve that temp with the BS so I used the BGE.

I found my annual treasure trove of fresh turkey breasts that were about to reach their suspense date and bought 30 at a greatly reduced price. 10 are on now in my Bradleys and I am marinading several more in the citrus marinade and will cook them tomorrow in the Bradley.

I also did the smoke / fried bird but did one more step did the Brine/smoke/injected/fried

Brined overnight
COLD smoked for 3 hrs with Cherry
Injected creole butter seasoning
Fried for 40 min in the peanut oil


Everybody said BEST turkey they ever had, when I cut the breast meat and held it up to move to the serving tray the juice literally ran out of it mmmmm good
