Turkey Day Lunch...Oh My!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

So, today we had our Big Turkey Day Lunch at my Work.  Wow did it turn out, but what else would you expect when you collectively get (4) people together that Love to SMOKE and Cook! 


We had one guy Smoke (2) Hams; then another person worked on the (4) Whole Turkeys for the Deep Fryer; then another person worked on (2) Turkey Breasts with his Smoke Flavors and I received (6) Whole Turkey Breasts to Carve Up and Prepare.  That took me 3hrs of work last night in prep time and I made up 3-Seperate Batches, (1) batch with Dry Brine, (1) batch with Honey Tomato Basils Herb w/Honey and Cider, and (1) batch with Giner-Ale and Cider Mix. 


Everything Turned out just amazing and we feed over 50 people!Turkey Day 2011.jpg

Everyone decided after today..."if we do this again; the New Lunch Time will be 2pm!!!"  And then everyone is going home at 3pm, but you better get someone to help drive you home.  Yep...pretty much everyone walked out with their hands holding on up front and so many great take home plates to share with Family and Friends...if the plate ever makes it home!


Thanks for the feedback everyone, I just wanted to share some added insperation and thank eveyone once again.  I have been very busy at work, but trying to read the posts each day and getting some great ideas!


Keep up the great work...and looking forward to making some amazing food on Thursday along with my wifes BIG 23.5lb BIRD she picked up.  I can smell the shepards pie on Saturday all ready...Ahhhhhh!

Well...On Thanksgiving Day, I fired up the smoker again and tossed in a 15lb Turkey along with a Turkey Breast all wrapped up.  They both turned out just amazing to say the least.


My wife just made Turkey Pot-Pie today with the Smoked Turkey and then used the bone meat to make up some soup for the guys at work on Monday...Wow!  Just amazing to say the least.


Turkey Breast with some great Rub and Honey Glaze...Just right!

Whole Turkey rubbed down with season and "Apply Butter" from the cider mill here in Michigan and then kept splashing with Cider over the 9hr cook time.  I did stuff in a cut up apple and celery in the back end of the Bird, It really helped to keep it moist and add some nice flavor with the rub mixed in.
