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...

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.

Looks great. I told the Canadian guy I work with that I would have a big plate of poutine to celebrate his holiday.

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!!

I noticed that Pitmaker does custom paint... will yours be sporting some Rider Pride..?

As a matter of fact, yes. :) And thanks for the luck. I hope it turns out as well as yours is looking! I've never cooked a turkey before so I'm wandering into uncharted territory.

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.

*droooool*

BTW that's no UDS. That's a really nice looking drum smoker! ;) Is it homemade or is it from a kit?
