Pop's Brine and Jeff's Rub Turkey

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well... 3 days in Pop's Brine, 2 days relaxing and drying I the fridge and here it is...

Put some Jeff's rub and it's going on the weber kettle at about 350-400 with some pecan and cherry.



Be back later!

Here it is going on the weber:



And here it is at about 120 IT


Smells great but looking a little charred. My mistake, Jeff's rub has a lot of sugar and at higher heat cooking I should have seen that coming. Plus side is that I try not to eat too much of the skin anyways. Be back later!

Doesn't look great but it smells awesome!!!



Made some stuffing with some homemade sweet italian chicken sausage I made. Just browed the sausage with someone onions and celery, add some stuffing mix, and chicken broth, stir until moist and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Well, looks ain't everything! That was the best turkey I have ever eaten! Pop's brine does it again! What I liked so much about it is the hammy quality, without being overly hammy. In general I am not a fan of ham at all. But the ham flavor doesn't bash you over the head. It's just right. Here are so plated pics with my stuffing and some mixed vegetables:




Thanks again to Pop's for his great curing brine! Can't wait for my Canadian bacon to be ready!

I have a turkey in the freezer. I may have to cure it.

Did you inject it?

I forgot to inject it but since I was smoking it pretty hot and fast I was told safety wise it was good to go. Definitely have to try this! It probably could have done without the rub it was so tasty

Thanks all! Like I said if you haven't tried a cured turkey, put it on your list! Definitely worth it!

I remember that thread. Just wondered.

Maybe I will do a chicken.
