Maple Brined Turkey

Maple Brined Turkey, the Holidays are right around the corner! For us it means getting together with great friends and wonderful food. We brined this girl in Ken’s famous maple brine and then smoked it until it was done to perfection. This bird was delicious, tender and juicy with a “Kiss” of smoky maple in every bite.

How to Spatchcock a Turkey

There are about a million ways to dress and cook a holiday turkey. In the end, they all have the same goal: juicy, flavorful turkey meat with golden, crispy skin. Spatchcocking (or butterflying) your turkey is a non-gimmicky way to get you to turkey perfection, fast. The technique involves removing the backbone and flattening the bird for cooking. This method is especially common for cooking chicken, but we think it’s worth it for turkey, too. Although the name may sound complicated, the technique is not. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

9 Best Turkey Fryers to Try on Thanksgiving 2021

Even though turkey is the mainstay of any Thanksgiving menu, it often gets a bad rap for being dry—for many of us, it can't compare to splashier side dishes like marshmallow-covered sweet potatoes or cheesy potatoes. But there is one way to make your turkey a stand-out dish, and that's by deep-frying it. Of course, to do that, you'll need one of the best turkey fryers; you should also study up on how to fry your bird safely. Note that deep-frying a turkey involves being near searing-hot oil, so it's always going to have some risk to it.
