  1. Duck or Goose Jerky

    Anyone ever make duck or goose jerky with their Kamado? Having a pretty good season and looking to try something different.
  2. First Turkey on my boss

    Got a 14lb bird and dry brined it for 18 hours with salt, raw cane brown sugar and black pepper. spatchcocked it - using a reciprocating saw to cut out backbone - scored skin first. seasoned bird with a stick and a half of butter 1/4 cup of Tony Chacheres cajun seasoning. Kamado was around 275 for the 2 1/2 hours I cooked it - Lump with 3 pieces of oak wood thrown in. as soon as deep internal temps got to 166 I pulled turkey out and let it sit for 20 minutes before cutting. I had never dry brined or spatchcocked a turkey before - I will likely never cook a turkey a different way again - ever.. it was the juiciest, most flavor full and most evenly cooked DOMESTIC turkey I have ever eaten. Puts frying them to shame as well. and I used a heat deflector.
  3. First Turkey on my boss

    good point scdaf
  4. Folks if you have a reciprocating saw at home - score turkey with knife and use reciprocating saw to spatchcock - works like a champ...
  5. Low Country Boil

    The best way to do a boil is to boil your veggies before the water gets fishy from the crawfish, crabs or shrimp... anything you put from mushrooms to brocoli will be good..... also when boiling crawfish.... 1 stick of butter for every 10lbs you boil and they peel MUCH MUCH easier..... crabs, shrimp and crawfish all have different boil/soak times.. too much boil or soak and make them too hard to peel and rubbery to eat.. not enough boil or soak time... well.... lets just say it aint funny.... half a cup of vinegar also helps crabs and shrimp peel easier.....
