    Re: Thanksgiving Treats

    Gudday Bruce
    I ran this recipe past the wife and she is very interested. It "ticks many boxes" with her , has sweet potato in it, nth African flavours , and sounds quite simple to put together. I'm under instruction to make a batch and we might possibly use it on Xmas night. We are away all day and we have to be able to produce something nice and fast for or guests when we return.
    Regards dave

      Dry brined the turkey & put a mustard/horseradish/panko coating on a crown pork roast. Turkey was 15 lbs & roast was 12 lbs. Took the oven temp up to 500F, equilized temp, then put the roast and the bird in. I figured the little higher temp at first would be good with that volume of meat. Both the bird & the crown came to 155-160F temp in 2.5 hrs...man, I love my oven! Used a beer can chicken rack to help support the crown roast shape during the bake. What amazes me is that the turkey was just as moist the day after Thanksgiving...no complaints at this household. By the way, my wife made the little turkeys with double stuffed Oreos, peanut butter cups, malt balls, candy corn, and a little red cake frosting (with melted chocolate to help hold some surfaces together)-food network idea.

        Dave, we just finished the last of the salad tonight. It held up well in the fridge and tasted good chilled. You could either make the salad a day early or prepare the components and assemble when you get home. I hope you enjoy the salad as much as my gang did, please share your thoughts. Bruce

          That good to know .... Be even better if it could be served straight from the fridge. Xmas night is covered we are having fresh prawns (shrimp) and blue swimmer crabs. The child bride ordered them on friday. Have a promise of a mud crab from a neighbor ... But I wouldnt hold my breath, he's been working on that boat 3 months now.

            Hey Dave - Those fishermen are a dodgy bunch, should know since I am one of them. The plan B is a great idea in case the good intentions blow out. Not sure if you have had a go at them but Spanner Crabs are the next best thing to a muddie. The only crab that I have found that freezes well and easier to pick than the blue swimmers and here they are $15/kg cleaned.

            Sorry about the thread hijack. The food that Mike has put up there looks very impressive. There is some excellent food displayed here.
            Cheers ......... Steve

              Thanks Bruce,
              I hadn't had a chance to comment on how It tasted. My guest said it was the best turkey they ever tasted so I guess it was ok.
              The wet dry combo brine along with the slow smoke charcoal snake method has won merit with me. The breasts were moist and flavorful along with the rest of the bird. The charcoal snake with the pecan wood chips gave it just the right amount of smoke. I'm no fan of a heavy smoke flavor. I made turkey soup with the leftovers the hint of smoke complimented the soup and it turned out great. I was happy with the results and would do it all over again.

                I have lined up on Xmas eve so many years now its not funny, we take coffee and we even have become friendly with the people who line up with us, cause we see them yr after yr.
                We are using a different mob this time ... To date they have been great ... But you are always a bit worried being Xmas and all.
                I have never had a problem with the fisher folk .... Being ex NAVY, a bit of LUT rope with a couple of eye splices in the ends will usually result in a fresh feed for the crew.....
                Yes I agree spanners are are good feed, but a Xmas just as expensive as the blue swimmers (sandies I think in some states). Muddies are overpriced much of the time except if you get them fresh, there never really "full"
                I'm spoilt I suppose I used to go out with me 8 yr old mate and his dad and we would "bard wire" the mangroves holes whilst his father checked his traps.
                Regards dave
