Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. If you’re planning to host the feast at your house, this likely means you have turkey duty. If you’re tired of having a dried out roast turkey every year, consider some of these alternative ways to cook a turkey. Some of these methods will give you the traditional look of a roast turkey, while others will be completely new.
- Braised. While a turkey cut into pieces doesn’t quite make a picture-perfect presentation, it’s taste will be incredible. The meat will stay moist and delicious.
- Grilled. Free up some space in the kitchen by cooking your turkey outdoors on the grill. Your turkey will get a crisp, smoky flavor.
- Propped in a beer can. Prop your turkey up on a partially full beer can and your turkey will be steam infused with its flavors.
- Spatchcocked. This method involves partially taking apart the bird by removing its spine so it can lay out flat. This method will help the turkey cook evenly, while still maintaining its shape.
- Brined. Soak your turkey in a salty, her -infused solution overnight and you’ll get moist, flavorful meat and can still roast it traditionally.
