The Centerpiece: An Appetizing Turkey
Whether you’re a fan of turkey or you prefer the sides, a beautifully prepared bird is always the centerpiece of the holiday table. Using your Kamado Joe is the best way to get the tastiest, juiciest, and eye-appealing turkey. Brine your turkey for 24 hours using the recipe below, then cook it low and slow on your Kamado Joe. Plan to let your turkey 20 minutes for every pound at 250 degrees. Use a thermometer to check the internal temp of your turkey, but don’t overcook it. You want the breast to be 160 degrees and the thigh/leg meat at 180 degrees. Once that happens, pull your turkey off the grill and let it rest 15-30 minutes before you carve it.
