Chef Tom shows you just how simple a truly fantastic Thanksgiving turkey can be. By spatchcocking, brining and roasting the bird at 325°Fi in our Yoder Smokers YS640 we end up with a wonderful roasted smokey flavor that compliments any other dishes you want to serve alongside your turkey.
Chef Tom adapts one of our favorite recipes from “BBQ Brian” Misko’s best selling cookbook, “Grilling with House of Q.” This simple recipe only calls for three ingredients and is perfect to make during the fall or as a great holiday side dish.
There are many ways to prepare and cook a turkey for the holidays from roasting whole to cutting into quarters and cooking separate. In the end, most methods work well enough. But “well enough” is not good enough for us. In our journey to find the best way to prepare a turkey we have tried it all. We always come back to the method that produces great results every time – spatchcock the turkey and smoke it.
The holidays are here and for many of us that means hosting family and friends for a turkey dinner (or lunch). There can be a lot of pressure on the host to find and prepare the perfect turkey, so we have come up with a few tips to make sure you have the perfect bird.
