Default Canadian Turkey Day Marathon

Well, the big day is here if you live in Canada...

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..!

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"
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...
