    Spatchcocked Turkey

    I have done my spatchcocked bird this exact way several times. It makes the most beautiful gravy we have ever tasted. I actually add more veggies (some scraps I keep in the freezer instead of tossing them; ie carrot celery, onion trimmings and skins etc) and a little less liquid. I take a large disposable roasting pan (doubled for sturdiness and safety) put it on the lower rack, put the prepared turkey on the main rack (NOT skin side down and my side dishes on the upper rack, therefore air circulates totally around the bird and cooks evenly. Wouldn’t be without my wonderful digital thermometers, put one in the breast and the other in the thigh. I follow Kenji Alt López’s (Serious Eats.com and The Food Lab fame) advice at the proper temperature to cook the meat to which is lower than Meathead’s and never had an undercooked bird, in fact so juicy that I must place the cutting board even with the juice well into a sheet pan to gather all the delicious juices to add them to the gravy. Getting ready to start up the KK now, i’ll try to document this cook, I went a bit crazy when I saw that Wallyworld had butterball turkey’s for $.98/ lb and bought FIVE. Four are in my freezer and the 12lb guy is dry brining the the refrigerator. Happy turkey day all! Sharon

    Pork Chops

    Wonderful! What temp were you shooting for and how thick were your chops? I had issues last night with my chops. Hoping to learn more about your success. Thanks

    New Owner in Seattle area

    Beautiful! Welcome to the family! I have had two of the old Richard Johnson's K's (1999 versions) and a Big Green Egg. This beats all! You will be so happy.
  4. Did a small pork picnic on the rotisserie, sorry no pics for this cook. Love our Thermoworks probes, they are the best. (Hint, Christmas?) Roast was small, could have easily been done it on my old RJ K3, but just wanted to play with the rotisserie. Issues with rotisserie, but Dennis came to the rescue, just several hours after a question. After having questions/issues with vendors with other ceramic cookers over the years, Dennis is the most refreshing person I have ever dealt with! Even though we are newbies with our 22" high top, but not to ceramic cooking, we are enthralled with our new KK. We have asked Dennis to build a matching baby KK (16.5" high top to match my bigger girl) and it should be here in the next several weeks. Can't wait! Just need to sell my old RJ K3 now. McKenzie, we will have twinies! OBTW, the rescused pork picnic was out of this world! Bark like no ever.

    KK as Steam Oven for Bread

    Delicious looking! I am a fan of no knead bead done in cast iron pot. May need to adjust recipe to work in our KK and her a whirl.

    Cranberry sauce

    Sounds interesting, Aussie Ora, what does a mulberry taste like? You'll have to us know how it turns out. We'll be waiting to hear.

    Pressure Cooked Fries

    Would love a separate PC section. Makes it easier to share. Have much to share with a PC and KKs owners and prospective buyers have much to navigate. My vote is YES.

    Cranberry sauce

    Bag of Ocean Spray or other fresh cranberries (12 oz) zest of one navel orange fresh squeezed orange juice (about a 1/4 cup) 1 large Granny Smith Apple or 2 small ones - peeled, deseeded, and roughly chopped 2/3 cup of sugar or up 1 cup depending on your taste (we like it a bit more tart) 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon Mix all in about a 4 quart PC, run it up to first red ring for about 5 minutes or so, let pressure come down naturally, set out warm and enjoy. Even better day 2! Recipe courtesy of Kuhn Rikon with a few adjustments.

    First turkey on the KK

    Thanks Mackenzie! Coming from you it's a huge compliment. I will post my cranberry sauce recipe on the recipe part of the forum. I suspect that you'll enjoy the fact that it's done in the PC. Easy peasy!

    First turkey on the KK

    Happy turkey day to all! Too chicken (pun indented) to try the rotisserie for turkey given my adventures earlier this week. Maybe next time. Still have another 12 1/2 lb in the freezer. After much debate decided to go with traditional turkey in a foil wrapped roaster and rack. While beautiful, juicy, and decilcous, didn't have much of the smokey flavor we love. Next time indirect on the main grill with a diffuser underneath or rotisserie. Meal was complete with fluffy mashed potatoes, sausage potato and bread stuffing cooked on the side, roasted cauliflower, and homemade cranberry Apple and orange sauce. Of course there was wine for all.
