How did you guys/gals cook your Turkey this year?  I brined mine and will repeat. It was a 19 pounder since we had 12 adults and 3 kids. Brine consisted of:

 

11 cups water

6 garlic cloves

.25 cup allspice

2.5 cups kosher salt

2 large white onions

Tablespoon whole cloves

.25 cup olive oil

2 cups chicken broth

3 celery stalks cut in half

A double deuce of Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale

2 cups ice

 

Add everything but beer and ice in a pot and boil. Pull off the heat and add the beer and ice.  Once cool, add the turkey to a brine bag and pour the brine in. Let it marinate for a good 24 hours.

 

I cooked the this one on the grill on indirect heat.  About 350 for 3.5 hours until it was 160 degrees and let it rest for 30.

 

Absolutely stellar turkey. Juicy and flavorful.

First time cooking a turkey by myself and I made a bed of chopped onion, celery, carrots, water, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and garlic and laid the turkey on there and let it roast for a few hours and was pleased with the outcome. I enjoy cooking a little more now.

Was I supposed to soak the turkey or let it marinate in all of those veggies and flavors?

My favahh wraps the turkey in bacon. But the real money is the gravy, some sort of sour cream based thing. I don't really know man, but it's gorgeous.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
