Make the most delicious turkey you’ve ever experienced with this in-depth tutorial.
This Version 2 is significantly expanded and improved.
Turkey – it’s America’s bird, the apple pie of poultry! Most of us relegate turkey to the Thanksgiving or Christmas table only. Try as we might, we at AmazingRibs.com just can’t understand this! Turkey, when properly cooked, is flavorful, moist, versatile and a veritable magnet for flavor. We enjoy it year-round. But it is tricky to cook. Slip up and the breasts are as dry as cardboard and the skin is flabby as a burst balloon. Within these pages, we share the tricks of a scrumptious smoky bird, tender and moist, with crisp skin, as well as how to cook just breasts, or legs, or turkey burgers, as well as stuffing, even mouthwatering Disney Turkey Legs.
Deep Dive Guides is the ebook imprimatur of Meathead’s AmazingRibs.com. It is a growing series of ebooks in which we have attempted to share our breadth and depth of experience on a variety of culinary topics. They are designed to give you an inexpensive deep dive into a topic so you come away knowledgeable and confident. They contain numerous links to pages on the internet and videos for more info. You will enjoy this book best if you read it while you are connected to the internet.
Some of this content is scattered among the 2,000+ pages on Meathead’s AmazingRibs.com. Although websites are great references, they are not great learning environments, not nearly as good as books. We think that binding together carefully edited articles in an organized flow from start to finish in book format, is a far better way to learn than from articles scattered around on a website.
Some of this info appears in other Deep Dive guides because we think that it is important that they all contain foundational info on such things as meat science, safety, tools, etc. So we have included the most important info within these pages and written new, previously unpublished, related info. Enjoy!
