Absolutely one of the best way to have turkey

Posted by norlin wan musa at

A dear friend of ours flew in from Melbourne recently. To celebrate her, we decided to throw an early Christmas dinner.  

Our main course was a 4kg turkey, smoked in the Cobb Premier. We served it with our homemade cranberry sauce, gravy, roasted potatoes and butternut squash. There is no trick to do it with COBB. We just brine the turkey overnight and truss the bird with string and place it on a roast rack with COBB extension. For smoking with use apple wood chips which has been soak in water. The whole process takes about 3.5 hours. We need to change the charcoal once after two hours.

We absolutely love how juicy and tender the turkey turned out. 

Smoking the turkey in a Cobb is to us one of the best ways to cook & enjoy our turkey.

The leftovers are great for making stock/broth. Just chuck in some veges/picked veges and leave to slow boil overnight
