Haven’t completely decided if we are smoking it or following our trusted Bobby Flay roasted Turkey recipe.

That sucker is getting brined this morning in preparation

CIAA Fan -

I typically brine, or soak lean meats in a salt based water solution, to provide a bit of moisture and flavor to the chicken or Turkey. I put the herbs and citrus components in with the bird and water. I let it go for 24-48 hours depending on size. The bird is thoroughly rinsed and cleaned before preparing after brining. It gives the bird some additional moisture before preparing. Since brining, we’ve never had an overly dry turkey - from the smoker nor oven.

There are tons of recipes with all types of brining options. I keep mine simple with cloves, garlic, onion, jalapeño, red pepper flakes, rosemary, thyme…whatever I feel like. I usually will throw in some citrus elements and notes as well. Orange, lemon or lime for balance.

Experiment with a broiler size chicken or Cornish hens first. Then I’d recommend a turkey breast, wings and/or drumsticks before doing a whole turkey.

I BOUGHT A QUART SIZE JAR OF DRIED BRINING SPICES LAST WEEK.  ONCE I GOT HOME AND READ THE INSTRUCTIONS THEY SEEMED A BIT CONFUSING.  I "GOOGLED" IT BUT THERE WERE SO MANY OPTIONS I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT APPEARED TO BE THE BEST (READ EASIEST) ONE TO TRY FIRST.  I THINK I WILL TRY IT ON A CORNISH HEN, FIRST AS YOU SUGGEST.

Since it's primarily just me, I don't cook a whole turkey anymore.  I usually just fry some turkey wings.  I had a bad experience dropping a turkey in a fryer years ago so I don't fry whole turkeys now.  I have been tempted to buy a greaseless turkey fryer but as I said it's primarily just me since my oldest son and his wife don't eat turkey and my youngest and his wife moved out of state.  I can cook a mean oven-baked turkey though.  I put a couple of apples in it and slow cook it.  Every piece of the turkey is moist and the meat almost falls off the bone,

Before my mom's Church separated themselves one from another, they would host a community feeding on Thanksgiving.  For about 28 years, I cooked three turkeys - one brined and smoked, one oven roasted and recently, one fried.  The brined turkey was almost always cut up an and served from a pan.  The oven roasted was carved into pieces for the head table and the fried one was also cut up and served from a pan.

For my house, I would brine and smoke a turkey for Thanksgiving and grill turkey parts (drumsticks and wings) during Christmas.  There basically is nothing left from the community dinner and we gather to give thanks.

I prefer dark meat mostly, and from a brined turkey, its moist and flavorful.  I have nothing against a fried bird - other family members bring in fried turkey and I take some of it home after all is done.

This year, my brother's in-laws will be at his house in Oxford County, NC and they will have a spread-in-a-half
