Turkey & Corn on Cob

edited June 2013 in EggHead Forum
Cooked an 11 lbs fresh turkey today. Used Simon & Garfunkle rub from Was planning on cooking 325 grate but end up being closer to 375-400 (2 year old distraction factor). Pulled at 170 internal.

Corn was misted with EVOO, salt, pepper and DP.

Sides of watermelon and a (store bought) salad.

Turkey was good but not as moist as some I've Egged. All in all, not bad though considering I only got back in town at 1:00 this afternoon.

    @LizzieSamps - I was in Colorado for work. It's funny, but when I travel for work (which I do often), I'm almost resentful I'm not home Egging!

    You said "fresh turkey" did you brine it??
  • CPARKTXCPARKTX Posts: 1,805
    @Charlie tuna - no, I didn't brine it...just didn't have time. By fresh I mean it was labeled that way and not frozen. No idea what difference fresh vs frozen might make, this is what SWMBO picked up from store.

    I have been brining my fresh local chickens and the difference is "big time" moist, and i want to try it on a fresh unbrined turkey to see if it makes the same difference in turkey??  I don't think i'll find a fresh unbrined turkey until the holidays???  Your has some nice color, for sure!
