Pullin' a Turkey

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by pyrolysis, Dec 16, 2006.

  1. Pullin' a turkey for a X-mas Eve party. I smoked one on thanksgiving and got it right on the 1st try. What do I need to know about pulling it. I've done pork butt and I don't know if pulling a turkey will get me the same results or not. I'm thinkin' maybe just basically seperate the meat from the bone and sort of a combo of chopping it up and pulled and into the pan.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Sounds to me like you are on the right track pyrolysis. Just because I am curious, what are gonna do with it after you pull it? Sammies?
     
  3. Either on a bun or next to potato's. Whatever your preference decides.
     
  4. Never had pulled turkey…I always figured it would be too dry, what with virtually no fat. Might be good in a turkey devonshire or maybe a turkey salad sammich or how about turkey croquettes! :shock:

    :idea: Both? :D
     
  6. Good idea ultramag! I'm sure I'll try it with as many combinations as I can come up with starting out with the a-la-by itself combo.

    The way this smokin' has gone for me I just hope for my quests sake I'm able to save them some. After all good intentions when I start I have a tendency to hoard the finished probucts and only tell the buds about what they missed, after the fact.

  7. Did a turkey recently and pulled it at 185deg let it rest for 2hrs then pull off bone chopped thr white meat, dark meat fell apart threw it all in a large iron skillet and use some Jack Daniels Q-juice(lightly) and served on buns with slaw turned out great... :D
     
  8. Thanks Bombsqd. Sounds like a winner lettin' it sit and pullin' it off the bone.

    Don't know if anyone is interested, but I found these on EBAY (nothing to do with me, I just bought a pair). These babes are the BEST thing I have ever used for pulling meat. Never tried them on turkey though but no reason they shouldn't work
