Whatuh ya'll cooken tomorrow?

I got a 10 lb rib roast going on the SM Grill over a red oak fire. The misses also picked up another 5 lb to go with that. She said the 10 pounder just didn't look big enough. Thant's my kind of woman! Our family is about 35-45 people. My job has been the roast for the past two years. Which is good. Don't care to cook foul too much. Can't wait till Friday to see all the cool methods used to cook em birds, hams and roasts and whatever else. Happy Turkey Day
Mike.

Re: Whatuh ya'll cooken tomorrow?

Your posts have talked me into grilling the turkey on the kettle. The winds are supposed to be between 40-50 mph, so the WSM is out of the picture. The bird is just a shade under 13 lbs. and I'm going to go with an herb brine. I've never tried this before, but it sounds like a fun way to cook a turkey. I was curious how much charcoal you used to start off if you don't mind me asking. I'm guessing probably a full chimney starter divided on each side of the drip pan? Thanks, and your rib roast feast sounds epic!

Re: Whatuh ya'll cooken tomorrow?

We are wih my wife's family on the Oregon coast, about 35 of us. My oldest son and are cooking 2 rib roasts, 8 pounder and a 10 pounder, and smoking a turkey tomorrow. The weather here is reall crappy. Rain and a lot of wind. My son lives here in Oregon and brought his WSM. Hopefully pics will follow.

Your wife is the white one?

Turkey, stuffing, stuffed mushrooms, mashed taters, sweet taters, red cabbage, green bean casserole, cranberry mold, apple pie, rice pudding. Damn, I'm full already!

13 lbs is perfect for a 22" kettle. I once cooked a 23 lb on my 27” kettle. The dang lid barely shut. Sounds like the brine will be perfect. I know the Blue bag Kingsford gets a lot of grief around here, I don't like it too much myself but I’ve used on several birds and they came out the best. Lump put a weird smoky flavor and also didn't bun long enough. Had to add more during the cook. Fill your chimney till it's overflowing. Dump half on each side. Your top coals should be not quite lit yet. If you wait for the top 1/4 to be on fire you'll burn up too much of the bottom coals. Bring up the kettle to temp/preheat for a couple of minutes and add the bird to the grill grate with a drip pan empty on your charcoal grate. Truss the bird so the legs and arms are not flopping around. Put foil around wing tips. Also add foil about an hour into the cook to the top of the bird. Just lightly tent and only if it’s getting too brown. About 45 min to an hour I also add foil strips to the sides of the bird down toward the underside. This will keep the sides closest to the coal from getting burned. The kettle will be 475+ degrees. And in 2 hours or so toward the end of the cook you’ll be at 325-350. Cook with the vents all wide open. The bird should be done somewhere around 2 to 2.5 hours. I check the temp in the breast by inserting a thermometer (Thermopen) under the skin at the opening of the caucus not to puncture the skin. Pull the bird at 165 in the breast and let it rest at least 20 minutes. Do not cover it or you will steam your crispy skin. You can also use a remote thermometer so you can keep an eye on it the whole time the bird is comming up to temp. Lastly prior to cooking, I let the bird set out to come almost up to room temp. I do this outside where it will only be about 60 degrees where I live. This has been argued to be a safety issue so this is up to you. This method helps it cook faster and much more even. The inside is done closer to the outside. Good luck.
