Canadian Turkey Day Marathon
Well, the big day is here if you live in Canada... :biggrin1:
Preparation for Sunday starts today... along with all of the great things to follow... a great Saturday of College Ball and CFL, leading into tomorrow's NFL sch'd., and a day of rest on Monday... Happy Thanksgiving Canada..! :clap:
After a practice run on the UDS the other week, we decided to up our game a little and brine our first turkey.
Here is what we made...
In large pot...
1 Gallon (4L) Chicken Broth
1 Cup Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
1pc Cinnamon Stick
Bring ingredients to rolling boil...
Turn-Off heat then add...
2 Cups Apple Juice
1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
3/4 Cup Dark Soy Sauce
1/2 Cup Corn Syrup
1/4 Cup Cooking Molasses
2 pcs Sliced Oranges
2 pcs Sliced Lemons
2 pcs Chopped Celery Sticks
1 Small Slivered Yellow Onion
1 pc Minced Head of Garlic
1/4 Cup Cracked Black Pepper
1 tsp Allspice
1 tsp Chinese Five Spice
Let cool and place in sterilized cooler w/Turkey, breast side down. Add ice to keep cool.
Along with the 15# turkey were gonna add a 10# pork shoulder to our Sunday UDS cook...
A little homemade rub...
And back into the fridge until 6:00am...
Now for today's cooking... our first "Naked Fattie" :mod:
It was supposed to be breakfast, but now will call it a snack.
Cooked on my Weber Performer.
And for supper... a little rib action...
More to come... the thread's just begun...
Doin it RIGHT!!! Hopefully you have a crowd to feed with all that grub!!!
It's gonna be a good-er..! :-D
Anyone have suggestions for what to cook on Monday..?
We've decided to opt for chicken for the big day this year. I wish I could talk the rest of the family into an untraditional Thanksgiving ... like ribs. :hungry:
Okay... snack finished.
A little mesquite smoke and things are good to go.
On to Saturday supper... stay tuned... UDS is fired-up :arrow:
Some goodies for tomorrow... courtesy of my daughter... :-D
More to come...
Looks great. I told the Canadian guy I work with that I would have a big plate of poutine to celebrate his holiday. :-D
At least add some pulled pork to it... everything is better with meat..! :-D
Looking good Goldenfinger! I'm on a barbecue moratorium until my new Pitmaker pit arrives on Wednesday but I have a turkey brining as we speak: strong tea, lemon, Big Rock IPA, salt, sugar. I'll be cooking it in the oven tomorrow but will fire up my Weber to heat up my wife's homemade cabbage rolls and perogies. Can't wait!!
Here's the ribs...
Full. Tired. Big day tomorrow... we'll pick this up again in the a.m.
Thanks Brethren. :-D
I noticed that Pitmaker does custom paint... will yours be sporting some Rider Pride..?
Hey, Brandon isn't that far away. I'm heading out to follow that smoke trail.
Don't worry, I won't be any bother. I'll bring my own knife & fork.
Big day is here... and a crisp -2C (28F) with frost to help with waking-up.
My Performer lighting-up the UDS
Pork Shoulder is first on (top rack)...
The pork shoulder will be used to baste the turkey on rack 2, and there is a water bowl on rack 3 that we're gonna use to catch the drippings from both... should make for a great Franken-gravy later. :becky:
It looks like you're off to a good start.
And....Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian Brethren!:wave:
BTW that's no UDS. That's a really nice looking drum smoker! ;) Is it homemade or is it from a kit?
