Smoked Turkey

For Thanksgiving I always cook my turkeys “Sous Vide” and this year was no exception. See my post “Sous Vide Turkey.” It turned out amazing, as usual. Since it was just Mary Jo and myself, a whole 24# turkey was more than we could eat on Thursday, so like most Americans, we have leftovers for a few days. Saturday came around and we were still working on the first turkey breast and leg/thigh that I seared on Thanksgiving, and I hadn’t gotten around to the second set. So, I decided to smoke the second breast and leg/thigh for dinner on Saturday.

Sous Vide Turkey

I have been cooking my Thanksgiving turkeys “Sous Vide” for over 10 years now, and I’ll never go back to the traditional roasting method. The turkey comes out moist and tender GUARANTEED! No over-cooked, dried out breast. Make the brine days before the holiday to ease your last minute prep and this method frees up your oven and stovetop for other items. As an extra bonus, there is no roasting pan to scrub at the end of the meal. Happy Thanksgiving!
