Hi. I'd like to introduce myself.

Hi, this is my first post. I am nucleus and I am into cooking too.

This is how to roast turkeys a subtle way using bricks and the heat from wood fire. Roasted pumpkin seeds will folow tomorrow ;o)

welcome nucleus.

with cooking like that, it won't be long until you're that center of attention here.

O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable.
Ever waxing, ever waning.
Hateful life; first oppresses, and then it soothes, as fancy takes it; poverty and power. It melts them like ice.

Poultry brine recipe.

:smile: A poultry brine recipe that will make you TURKEY ROASTS the best you have ever had.
For a 14 to 16 pound frozen young turkey or 4-5 Chickens in the 2-3 Pound class.

1 Cup Salt
1/2 Cup light brown sugar
1 Gallon Vegetable Stock (16 Cups)
1 Tablespoon Black pepper corns
1/2 Tablespoon allspice berries
1/2 Tablespoon Candied Ginger
1 Gallon iced water (16 Cups)

Turkey cooking/roasting Guide:
1. Prior to cooking make sure the turkey is fully defrosted.
2. Preheat the oven to 350F - 180C
3. Remove defrosted turkey from bag.
4. Place turkey in roaster pot, or baking tray, or in single use baking/roasting tray and cover with foil.
5. Cook in preheated oven at 350F - 180C for 30-40 minutes per every 18 ounces or 500g of its weight.
6. Add a further 20 minutes cooking time for turkey with stuffing.
7. Approximately 45 minutes prior to the end of cooking time remove foil from turkey. In this time you can apply smoke if smoking for the taste is desired! I like it smoked.
8. Cover and rest the turkey for 10 minutes prior to carving.
9. Carve, serve and enjoy.
10.(In well-designed wood fired oven you can hold this temperature for 5+ hours. This recipe works perfectly also for poultry in conventional ovens.)
1 Five gallon bucket or cooler. I use the types of cooler for holding drink mixes, the type that is round like a pail with a spigot on the bottom edge to fill drinking cups. These are available here at the large discount store for about 20 dollars.
Place all the ingredients except the Iced water, in a large pot and bring to a boil. Remove form heat pour into the cooler and add the iced water. Stir to mix and add the poultry. Let the poultry sit at least eight hours in brine. Drain and cook. I use a cooler, as I do not have room in my refrigerator to safely store the poultry. Make sure the poultry stays cool to keep the salmonella bacteria away. With the turkey I cut out the wishbone before cooking to make slicing much easier later on. I promise this will be the moistest turkey you have ever had and the flavor is indescribable. Try it and let me know what you think.

Thanks and enjoy.
You all laugh at me because I am different. But I'm laughing at you all because you're all the same.
Checkout my hobby. ♂ ♀ ☼ ♥
