Reviewed Cajun Brined Turkey-Two Ways

Dec 26, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

The rub and brine were awesome, rate those at 5 stars. The only issue I have with the recipe is I think 350 is way to hot on the green egg to get a tender bird. The turkey had great flavor that I cooked on my large green egg but was a bit tough. This could be attributed to the quality of meat but honestly I think a lower temp at maybe 300 for a...

Stainless steel is bad about sticking
Sure you have enough butter coating it?

It was a solid side item however the recipe calls for WAY too much dressing/marinade. I cut it down by half and it still nearly ruined the whole effort. Make sure you slowly add in the dressing after all the prep is done so it is not over dressed. Also, I thought this was a horrible side to go with the trout Bobby made on the recipe. Acid on t"

I reduced the marinade while the fish was cooking and tossed in some butter at the end for a sauce. Simple but tasty marinade if you like lemon and rosemary.

I actually used gulf redfish and since it was raining sauteed it and oven finished."

Pros: The flavors were great in the sauce and veggies
Cons: My brisket turned out really tough. I thought 350 was way too high for a brisket but followed the recipe anyway. Boy did I regret it. After 1.5 hours at 350 my brisket was so tough I had to throw half of it out. This is definitely a slow braise type of recipe but if you do that...

This recipe may be good if the food network didn't bungle the cooking time on the leeks. I watched this episode and thought this might turnout good even with the cost of leeks. Boy was i wrong. The recipe calls for 12 minutes of boiling. I pulled mine off at 11 min because i was worried they would be overcooked and they sure were! The leeks we"
