Christmas Help

Postby only charcoal » 16 Dec 2015, 04:43

Im an expat in Bahrain struggling with the size of the ovens here! I plan on cooking a 5kg fresh turkey on the Kettle BBQ over either charcoal or Briquettes its a big old thing 120cm by 90 cm so plenty of room . Advice needed as I have 6 to feed and also a pork joint to cook, the oven is reserved for the trimmings. Never cooked a bird this big >>>>> and I don't want to poison every one!

THanks in advance OC

What sort if unit is it? Where are the vents?
Main thing is to keeo the heat down one end anf the bird at the other. To feed 6 people on your first bash is brave. I think I'd spatchcock it to be safe. Wont look quite as good but be much safer and cook quicker.
Never done a turkey but if anything like chicken you have a problem. I'd do the turkey hot and fast anf the pork low and slow!
