First thanksgiving cook
« on: November 20, 2020, 11:58:13 PM »
So my family likes to do things a little unconventional, we are a decent size family and we all have our own wives/gf. Which makes getting together for holidays a little more difficult. So we always find a day of the week when we can get together for the holidays and donít have to compete with the rest of the family. This was the first year when I was able to be in charge of the protein. So what better way than to show off what Iíve learned from all of you :). Iím still pretty new to charcoal grilling and I think I joined here in February. But I felt like Iím ready. So I did a 20# spatchcock turkey in the 22Ē kettle with Cb stacker. And I did a double smoked spiral sliced ham that I copied from swine life bbq recipe with the rib glaze on the 18Ēwsm. It was a little difficult trying to plan two different meats to be ready at the same time and to correlate with all the other sides, but I feel like they made it out around a good time. The ham on the wsm took a little longer than planed and I had to increase the temp at the end to help finish it off. I did a few practice turkeys at home to dial in the recipe. I didnít want a dry turkey. I wasnít able to practice with the ham. All in all it turned out great everyone was very happy and thought it was the best turkey theyíve ever had (I donít have the highest bar we usually eat dry turkey). Iím very  happy with the response from the family and hope to be the cook for the rest of the family meals. Just wanted to say thanks for everyone of you in helping me to feel confident to bbq for my large family. Iím thankful for everyone of you [emoji884]

Growing up in an Italian family, turkey was like a side dish for us on thanksgiving [emoji634][emoji631][emoji3]

I just want to know, how you turned to a pro so fast. Donít know about any one else but it took years...or more to dial in stuff! Just kidding. That food looks fantastic. Well done! I would eat that protein any day...

That ham was a perfect color I got hungry just looking at it
Wife said "No more GRILLS in this house!" So I bought a 2nd house!
