Just trying to get a little breakfast going before the madness begins. We don’t eat thanksgiving till 4pm this evening and we will be doing one Turkey traditional stuffed in the oven and the other Turkey minus legs and thighs and wings and drumets in the charbroil infrared. Happy Thanksgiving to all :cheers:8D04AB99-6797-4DA4-A008-B19A3C9A5C17.jpeg

Maybe not exactly pool side, but certainly BBQ, and one of the things I love about Australia: The sausage sizzle. Every weekend at the hardware store, organised by local clubs or organisations to bump up their finances. And then on election days. Wherever you make your tick, afterwards we all enjoy our democracy sausage and get back to the essential things in life.

I was in such a hurry to get things ready, I only took 1 picture and that was just before putting turkey on the smoker. Oh well - it tasted great! It was probably my best turkey ever. That honey butter injection and glaze was phenomenal! I also got a new toy - a Meater+. I was pleasantly surprised at how accurately it predicted the cooking time, as most reviews said that feature didn’t work well.

Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving!

My recteq blog mentions the Meater thermometer a bunch but i have already invested in thermoworks as long as the food is cooked to your perfection :cheers:

Wow, I've been here on site for quite a while and never knew there was a grilling section, thanks Jark for pointing thee way!
And as far as steaks I agree with jark on the slow smoke and blazing reverse sear! Heres a Tommahawk I did a few weeks ago.

We’ve had a spectacular day here in DFW, with temps in the mid-50s, blue skies and hardly any wind. After spending the day raking leaves, I decided to grill some chicken thighs. I didn’t have too much time, so I only dry brined for an hour or so. Dried off the thighs, coated them with a very thin layer of olive oil, and dusted them with flour seasoned with Lanes Scorpion Rub and R Butts R Smokin Cherry Habanero rub. The flour, along with cooking high in the dome on the extension grate, was intended to crisp up the skin, which it did. But I ended up saucing them with Sweet Baby Rays Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce. Cooked indirect at 450° - powered by Revolver Blood and Honey Texas Ale. Turned out great - nice and juicy!

I love thighs however DW only likes the wings and breast so I don’t cook them very often. Those look great 👍:cheers:

Brent scotch eggs are not hard to prepared. I will boil eggs to semi set this makes for a nice yolk, wrapping egg in sausage, breading and frying. I use plastic wrap and our tortilla press to flatten sausage 1/4" thick circle. I feel that are worth the effort and I love`em with honey mustard or spicy mustard.
The older the egg the easier to peel from a semi soft state. Homemade scotch eggs are way better than from a restaurant or frozen these yolks will be too hard and over cooked the dreaded green hue which is bitter tasting.
