There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Turkey Test Run

300 degrees for about 3.75 hours on a 15 lb bird. Took it off at 160 breast. It was just a shady brook "natural" which basically means the 3%wt brine solution doesnt contain plutonium. It came out pretty good. Of the 10 or so turkeys I've cooked, this was the first my dad had. He's always been a 28lb bird stuffed etc so it was fun to see his reaction to the texture of a smaller unstuffed bird. I did put one chunk of Adler on the coals and it was gave the bird a lot smokier finish than I was expecting. I was expecting a very subtle smoke and while good, it was much fuller than I would want to serve for the traditional holiday bird.
