Recipe tweaking before I smoke - turkey fattie edition

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ok, I have two very important and very fattie unfriendly dietary restrictions: No dairy products and no pork products.  So, after searching this forum and my own creativity, I've come up with these two fattie ideas that I'll be trying on 7/4.  I thought I'd run them by everyone to see if anyone has any tweaks or suggestions. 


Also, I had a (I think) great idea for others that can't or don't want to use bacon as a wrap: chicken skin!  I'm going to steal some chicken skin from some chicken drumsticks I have and wrap them as best as possible around the fattie to add fat and keep it moist. For those that want to get really serious about it, I imagine you can get chicken skin from the local butcher or supermarket. 


To the recipes:


Thanksgiving-themed Fattie (idea not mine, but some new ingredients).


The ground turkey - flavored with a mix of traditional turkey herbs and more Q-friendly things like brown sugar and paprika. I'll probably do a mix of smoked turkey rub and roasted turkey brine. 


Inside - my grandma's fixed up cranberry sauce (the secret is canned pineapple), walnut stuffing (I think the oil in the walnuts will help keep things moist), and asparagus. 



Mexican-themed Fattie: (again, not the first to think of this in general, but some new ingredient ideas)


The ground turkey -  I either want to use my go-to taco seasoning or perhaps a turkey chorizo recipe. 


Inside - homemade refried beans, black olives, onion, garlic, tomato, spanish rice, (maybe avocado???). 



So, what does everyone think?  As I've said, I know I'm not breaking new ground with the concepts, but I haven't seen these particular ingredients used yet. I'd love to hear what people think and suggestions about what to add or leave out.
