Default 'Eve Dinner: 2 Briskets, 1 Turkey and a Ham!

Well as the title suggests, I am going to be doing a big cook tomorrow for Christmas Eve. Little daunting honestly! But I have planed out what im doing and have schedules to go off of. Figure I would document my progress on here as I'll have my laptop and phone next to me for the day. More or less a live smoke! I have seen live hunts done on some hunting forums and figure would be fun to try. Hopefully someone can read this and learn or I can look back and smile! (Or cringe! ) Anyway, meat prep starts tonight after 6. I'll start adding more then!

Ill post up my schedules I'm going off of that I've borrowed idea's from here and there.

Well it has started! Trimmed the Briskets. One was real lean with a great fat cap. Didnt need to take off much at all. The other....not so lucky! Had lots of fat to trim but we made it work. Injected with broth, Accent, and garlic. So letting sit overnight to chill. Will get up @ 3AM to get the fire going. Here is some pic:


Here are the 2 briskets in the packers



Here is brisket #1 trimmed up.



#2 had a bit more fat. But should make some good burnt ends with all the marbling in the point.



Me making a mess with the knife! haha.....



Here is the Turkey in the buttermilk Brine.
Brine has the following:
-50/50 mix of water and Buttermilk
-1 cup of kosher salt per gallon
-Few Sage leaves
-Few sprigs of rosemary
-Few sprigs of Thyme
-1 Tbs of whole pepper corns
-1 Tbs of allspice
-1 orange peal cut into strips
-1/4 cup of honey
-2 tbs of garlic
-One whole orange squeezed into brine and dropped in
Smells awesome!!!!!!



Lookie what I got for an early Christmas gift!!!!!!! The woman did good! Get to break it in nicely tomorrow!

Anyway....im tired and ready to get some limited sleep! Ill be back up at 3 to get the fire going and add more tomorrow!

Dinner was awesome! Everything hit when it should and time was dead on. Don't ask me how that worked out that way! Here is some prOn:


Prepping the turkey with roasted garlic butter. Stuck under skin. Was a good touch!



Turkey and 2 briskets on the smoker.....lots of food!



Turkey about done with ham getting warmed up with some more smoke....



Ham set out to eat.



Brisket cut and put out.....



Burnt ends really turned out well this go around!



Turkey turkey turkey! Was greatness!



Stuffing, homemade mac-and-cheese, and German potato salad



Another shot of the goods.....

All and all it was so worth it. Enjoy making this stuff. Glad it turned out the way it did and had lots of fun with the iGrill....

Thanks for looking!!
