To each his own.We're actually having meatloaf, for a change of pace. Meatloaf made with ground beef.I'm going with the smoker.
While I love em deep fried it's a pain in the ass.
I plan on using oak for my main fuel with a little pecan to add some sweetness.
I haven't used the oven in ......well,never.
I generally separate the breast from the dark meat by cutting it under the breast by the ribs.
This leaves you with the breast as a single piece and the dark meat by itself. I never cook the whole bird since it's impossible to have the breast come out moist.
I also brined the bird for 24 hours with salt,brown sugar,peppercorns,bay leaves,apple cider,orange peels and garlic.
So how do you do your bird?
We're doing a bird for Thanksgiving and plan on doing a Prime Rib for Christmas.
But I hear ya...I get tired of the traditional shit myself.
