It is estimated that over 46 million turkeys will be cooked this Thanksgiving, spending hours in ovens across the country. But did you know it was possible to create a holiday feast using a grill? While thought of as more of a summertime appliance, grills and smokers create a delicious and juicy turkey sure to have your family members reaching for seconds.
Grilling expert Chef Jason. K Morse shares all there is to know about grilling your bird (and more!) this holiday season.
CHEF JASON’S GRILLING TIPS INCLUDE:
· If you’re looking for the best insurance policy for a tasty and juicy turkey, Brine is the way to go. This flavorful solution of herbs, spices, salt, sugar and aromatics work together to deliver an amazing main course.
· When it comes to cooking the turkey, we suggest cooking it uncovered for the last 45min to 1 hour, this browns the skin and delivers an amazing visual to the aromas in your house.
· Looking to cook your entire meal on the grill? Why not use a cast iron skillet to create truly next level stuffing. It’s the best of both worlds with soft stuffing and crispy edges. This will make everyone happy.
