What really  made me laugh: the Tire and Lube Job Express--while you're waiting for them to stuff your...Turducken!

 :o


Well, I guess you need some good lube to get all those animals stuffed into each other --- de-boned or not...  ::) ;D

Why would you soak a turkey in brine?  ???

At The Hoof Cafe in Toronto, Geoffrey Hopgood, the chef, brines hams, wraps them in wet hay and cooks them sous-vide for a juicy entree with notes of nuts and grass.  ;D

I've heard of soaking ham to get the salt out of it, but not of soaking it in brine to add more salt to it.  ???

Last weekend I cooked my second turkey of the season. The first one was roasted the normal way, but for the second one, I brined it for two days in a mixture of water, kosher salt, sugar, lemon juice, garlic, and bay leaves. On the day I was to cook it, I rinsed off the turkey and patted it with paper towels. I let it air dry for an hour or so, then rubbed it with olive oil, salt, pepper, and smashed garlic cloves. I stuffed it loosely with aromatics and popped it into a hot (425) oven for 20 minutes. I then lowered the heat to 325 and cooked the turkey with a thermometer probe in the breast until the internal temperature reached 165F. I let the turkey rest, tented in foil, for close to an hour while I made the gravy. Got compliments all around the table such as "best turkey ever!" and we're enjoying the leftovers too.
