What's New At The Barbecuehut?
In the January issue I mentioned that lots of people come to the Barbecuehut
in search of information about smokers and grills and that I'll be adding
more content relating to that. Well I've been busy putting together some reviews
and I've posted the first two on the website. They are reviews of the Weber
classic, the Weber Smokey Mountain. Weber have improved the design of their
original and then gave it a bigger brother as well. Take a look at the format
that I'll be using and let me know what you think. Here's the link to the Weber
Smokey Mountain Cooker 18.5" Smoker.
I'll continue adding reviews of smokers and grills in the same format and I'm
really interested in you opinions. To get in touch please email
me. I appreciate you time.
Recipe - Smoked Turkey
When looking for smoked food receipes it appears that the most searched for
is smoked salmon. But, as I included arecipe for salmon in my last newsletter,
I've gone for the second most favorite which is smoked turkey.
There are loads of recipes for smoked turkey but the one here is for a whole
turkey, and a relatively simple recipe at that.
Poultry seems to absorb more of the smokey flavor than other foods, and if
you have it cold the next day the smokiness seems to be even more enhanced.
It's always difficult to give a time for smoking food as it depends on a great
many factors: the outside air temperature, the wind factor, the fuel being used,
the characteristics of the smoker itself, etc. So the timing here is approximate.
Refer to the manual that came with your smoker.
Preperation: 10 minutes.
Cooking: 7 hours
- 1 whole turkey about 12 pounds (6kg) in weight.
- 4 ounces (125g) of butter.
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- 1 or 2 bay leaves, crumbled.
- 1 teaspoon of dried sage.
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped.
- 3 celery stalks.
- Remove the giblets and thoroughly rinse the turkey inside and out with cool
water. Then pat dry.
- Rub the inside of the turkey all over with the butter.
- Season the inside of the turkey with the salt and pepper.
- Stuff the turkey with the bay leaves, sage, onion and celery..
- Place the turkey on the smoker grid and smoke for about 7 hours. Adding
water as required..
Easy as that!
If you don't have your own barbecue smoker... get one :-)

ROAST TURKEY ON A BARBECUE
Prepare and stuff turkey as for roasting. Prepare fire on covered grill, and
use indirect heat with pan under bird and coals on either side. Use thermometer
to keep heat between 325ºF and 400ºF. Add charcoal periodically to
keep heat up. Rub turkey with peanut oil and place directly on grill. Baste
frequently with the following sauce recipe. If the turkey is over 10 pounds,
double the sauce recipe.
- 1 C. white wine
- 1/4 C. olive oil
- 2 T. butter
- 1 medium onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 tsp. each salt, pepper and parsley
- 1/4 tsp. paprika
- 2 tsp. rosemary
Simmer all of the above ingredients in a saucepan for 15 minutes.
- 10 lb. turkey - 25 minutes per pound
- 10 to 15 lb. turkey - 22 minutes per pound
- 15 lb. or over turkey - 18 minutes per pound
For best results, use heat thermometer in turkey thigh for testing doneness.
