Trying my first rotisserie turkey breast, 8 1/2 Lbs!
We'll know in about 3 1/2 hours.
Confused
Basting with  a wet sauce of poultry & veggies stock cubes, onion, garlic & poultry seasoning & a little black pepper.
Film @ 11(I hope) its a little unbalanced, a whole one would probably be easier, but its just the 2 of us & neither of us like dark meat. Plus its a test drive for thanksgiving.

Thanks much appreciated.
About 1/2 done, getting a nice color.
Really starting to get that cooking turkey smell too.
Thank heaven for the offset weight adjustment, this thing is very one sided & so needed balancing.

For the first turkey breast on a rotisserie it came out well. Did it with the lid on the kettle, a pan of water in the center & the coals offset to the  sides.
Next time we're thinking of shoving some bacon up inside the body cavity before rotisserie-cooking it. Kind of basting from the inside out! That should be an interesting take on bacon & turkey!

I cannot wait to make some turkeys in a few weeks!  You turkey looks great!  Now I’m hungry.  Here’s a photo of mine from last year, I smoked a few.

You've got "Marmite" Shamu, do you use it in your recipe?

Not for turkey, its a bit strong for that.
I use it in shepherds pies, chili meat, beef stews & just melted butter on a bagel though.
Notice the "brannie" hiding in the background?

The wife got some proper English sausages from Marks & Spencers food shop in Paris last weekend.
They are just so much better than the French Chipolata's!
We have Marmite as well and I good a French friend to taste it; he made the mistake of sticking a teaspoon in the jar as if it were jam! the look of surprise on his face was hilarious! A jar is probably 10 years supply. Branston pickle is ideal for a Ploughman's lunch.

If only we could get good cheese over here.
All the milk is pasteurized by law so a lot of cheeses are a weak imitation at best.

I have an Amish community about an hour away.  I head out there occasionally to pick up cheese.  They don’t use pasteurized milk, it tastes so much better.

Same in Canada... but many collective farms (Hutterites, Mennonites and I suspect Amish) in my area still make cheese the old way... and will gladly sell you a wheel "out the back door."Wink
