Christmas is just around the corner and for a lot of people, it’s time to start thinking about the turkey. Most people in my family are fans of the breast meat, so this year I’ve decided to showcase a lovely boneless turkey crown!
Ask your butcher to roll it and tie it for you so it cooks nice and evenly. Obviously being The Smokin’ Elk, I like to cook mine outside on the BBQ and I’d encourage you to do the same. It will free up all of that oven space, removing some of the stress from the kitchen. Plus you can always have a sneaky beverage outside while it cooks!
I’ve kept the flavours fairly simple, using only flavours that will complement the turkey well. Once you add on a kiss of cherry smoke from the BBQ, it’s going to be glorious!
The turkey will continue to cook once you remove it from the BBQ or oven, so set the alarm on your thermometer to 66°C and the final temperature will rise to around 74-75°C during the rest.
