Food Thread: Turkey? Yuck! Give Me Pork Chops Or Give Me...Uh...Pecan Pie!

spatchturkey.jpg

I am no fan of turkey, especially as the centerpiece of a festive meal. Why go to all of that trouble and work to cook something that tastes...okay? Sure, here at Chez Dildo there will be a roast turkey (cooked by someone else) on the Thanksgiving table, but it will be side by side with a glorious bone-in Sous Vide pork loin, finished on the grill.

But if you do insist upon serving (and even eating) turkey on Thanksgiving, why not spatchcock it so it cooks much more quickly and evenly? I have been doing that with chicken for years, and it works perfectly. All of the skin is exposed to the heat of the oven, so you get more crispy stuff, and the thighs and legs are on outside of the pan and exposed to more heat. Plus, you can protect the breast from overcooking more easily than on an un-spatchcocked bird. Hell, it's also easier to get compound butter or herbs and such underneath the skin, so honestly there is no excuse!

******

Next week will be a combination of frenetic planning and cooking and eating and napping, in various percentages depending on the situation in your home. But no matter if you are serving a monstrous three day feast for 20 people, or having a quiet evening alone with a simple meal and a glass or three of bourbon, have a wonderful and peaceful time!

It is a pleasure writing the Food Thread, which is a bit of a respite from the insanity that surrounds us. Thank you all for reading and commenting and sending me wonderful photos of the deliciousness that seems common in Moron kitchens.

Hopefully Ace will give the OK for the second volume of "The Deplorable Gourmet" which, if you haven't read, is a romp through the twisted and clever minds of a bunch of Morons who also know a think or two about cooking.

So nag him when you see him in the comments, and maybe we will get Volume Two (II) 2 before we are too old to chew our food!

Commenter and chef extraordinaire "Pete Bog" is experimenting with large quantities of duck fat and turkey legs. Yes, my antipathy for turkey made me suspicious, but damn, it's a good idea, they look great!

But why is he cooking turkey so early? Apparently at Chez Bog they have a tune-up Thanksgiving feast before the main event, and I must admit that sounds quite civilized!

Yup...turkey pot pie, writ large! It looks good too! Looks like they will be eating well at the Bog house...

This is why I rarely go to the store with a firm plan, because wandering around and seeing something unexpected is always a pleasure.

Those are leeks....which in my neck of the woods are usually stupidly expensive, but for whatever reason they were priced normally. So why not?

Of course when I got home I realized that I had no idea what I was going to do with them, other than toss them into the stock pot. But a few minutes on the internet and roasted leeks with Parmesan piqued my curiosity.

roastedleeks1.jpg

And I am very glad they did, because it was easy and delicious. For those of you who haven't eaten leeks they are a sort of onion, with a sharp aroma and flavor when raw. But that roasted turned them delicate and sweet and delicious, and I will be doing it again!

As the more enlightened of you know, pecan pie is the platonic ideal of pie, and all others are weak and diminished when compared to the glories of a well-made pecan pie, warm from the oven and served with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Or reheated in the microwave for breakfast the next day and served with a big cup of strong coffee.

There are minor additions that can be made to take into account stylistic differences...Bourbon and dark chocolate are the only two contenders that matter, but a weak argument can be made for Rye.

My new favorite recipe includes lots of toasted and chopped pecans in the filling, which really adds to the pecan-iness of the whole production. The recipe is from "Cooks Illustrated," so it's behind a pay wall. But if you are curious I have my version of it in PDF form...

******

Last week's Food ThreadTM featured a spirited discussion in the comments about coffee...specifically home roasting. Somebody mentioned the gasses that are trapped in freshly roasted beans, and how they can make sort of a mess by frothing the brewing coffee and expanding the slurry of ground coffee and water past the boundaries of the vessel.

Geeky but interesting, so I grabbed some fresh beans and did a before and after photo. That is 33 grams of freshly ground beans in a mellita-style filter with a valve so I can steep the coffee for as long as I want. The first photo is the loft created by the released gasses, and the second is the slurry after I mixed it gently for about 10 seconds. That is a lot of lost volume!

Just send me oysters. Lots of oysters, and I will provide special dispensation for those without taste who insist upon maple syrup with their French Toast. And pork rib roasts from the front end of the pig where all the good and fatty meat lives, carrots that don't taste like stalky chalk, spare bottles of Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year Old Bourbon, an herb garden that actually produces herbs (but no basil!), well-marbled NY strip steaks and elk backstrap to: cbd dot aoshq at gmail dot com.

And don't think that the rest of you are off the hook with maple syrup and French Toast: I'm still watching you! And I am watching you perverts who shake Manhattans and keeping a list for the Burning Times.

Amen - mine, either. My spouse insisted on the biggest free turkey in the store vs getting the 8-9lbers free (b/c there was nothing in between) b/c he loves my turkey so much...

It helps that I make one of the sourest cooked cranberry sauces (never ever add the bag listed level of sugar and always add another fruit - this year, its apples and pears with some pear nectar replacing some water - I start at 1/2 the recommended sugar and work up by the TB til I'm happy with the tart and the taste) and best ever gravies to go with, kinda like a prime rib is served with both au jus and horseradish sauce, so your mouth is always dancing...

6 For my wife and her family, it isn't Thanksgiving dinner without the canned cranberry sauce. It absolutely must be the kind with the can ridges imprinted on the sauce and must be served as a big one-piece cylinder.

One year, I slaved and slaved and made good cranberry sauce from scratch and you'da thought I was trying to poison them. Okay, lesson learned. The next year I served the canned shit but make the mistake of cutting a serving spoon into the cylindrical blob.

The horror!!

10 Yesterday the ever-indulgent wife got me a food-related Christmas present - "The Ultimate Cheese Making Kit".
It makes 40 batches of cheese, 10 different types. Mostly fairly soft cheeses - nothing that has to age more than a day or two. Looks like a lot of fun. We skimmed through the booklet so we know what kind of milk to buy just before Christmas. Plan is make a batch of Mozarella first.

We paid a bit more than the Amazon price because we bought it at a local cheese shop (The Better Cheddar)

My kids told me if I don't make homemade cranberry sauce, it's not Thanksgiving to them. They always ask me what the fruit add will be.

To add on to my "start really low (like half) with the sugar and work up" - you can always add sugar as you keep cooking the sauce, but you can't take it out...so you can't get perfect if you don't taste your way up...depending on my fruit (and how sweet or sour the extra fruit elements are), I usually end up 25-30% less sugar...

16 I have an American Waygu beef brisket in the pellet grill right now. Costco Dallas had these for $6.00 a pound the other day and I picked one up. I put it on the smoking pan at 275 for about 5 hours and there is so much liquid fat in the bottom pan that is nearly overflowing the lip. I have never seen that much fat drippings from a brisket. I wrapped it about an hour ago when it hit 165 and it should take another 1 or 2 hours at 275 to finish it.

36 So, I know I posted my "convenience item" Thanksgiving pumpkin dip staple last week and I mentioned I use a 1/2 can of the pumpkin pie dip (and I don't measure).

That's b/c I use the other half in my pumpkin pie ice cream pie, a 5 minute dish that lets you focus on cooking and not baking, and still have a platable, beautiful dessert.

In its original form, it's the other 1/2 of the jar of Libby's Pumpkin Pie filling folded with 1 pint (you need at least 16 oz) of softened Haagen Daz vanilla ice cream and a swirl of caramel or dulce de leche and dropped in a graham cracker crust and frozen. To serve, pull out 10 minutes before cutting, slice and serve on plates, drizzling more caramel and putting a nice whipped cream top.

Serve the same way, with a drizzle of the caramel and a swirl of coconut whipped cream.

47 Hey, folk! I tried something new with eggs & bacon this morning. The strips of bacon are far too long to fit in the small cast iron pan. Today, I popped them into the big non-stick pan and cooked them, flipping them periodically, until I judged they were *almost* the way I like them. Then I flipped them into the heated cast iron and cracked and scrambled an egg in the still hot and still bacon-greased non-stick. By the time the egg, seasoned with paprika and taco seasoning, was ready, so were the bacon strips. Very good flavor from both.

Next time I need to start heating the iron pan a little earlier.

58 T'giving this year: back to the Redfish Grill on Bourbon Street (my old hometown, as it happens). They are having the big buffet this year, with turkey and prime rib, along with oysters, redfish (of course), and a lot of other things. I had thought it would be astronomically expensive this year. No; just $60/person, the same or nearly so as in 2020. Last year we went to a quiet restaurant in the 'burbs with no buffet, but good service. But Redfish is doing the buffet again.

We had a pecan orchard on our farm (pecan fed beef since the cows grazed there and ate pecans) and you are right - something happens with packaging that changes the flavor. It's a shame about the crop this yeara.

***
We've been numerous times in the last 20 years. It's in the 100 block, right off Canal Street. Technically and legally it's not *in* the French Quarter; the first block of the streets that parallel the river are excluded from the local historic commission's writ, which explains why there can be so many hotels there. But nobody notices.

I used to shop all through there as a teen, the Woolworth stores, the WT Grant, first-run movie theatres, the D. H. Holmes department store with the clock that Toole mentions in Confederacy of Dunces. So much of it has changed -- more properly, so little remains unchanged -- that I feel like a tourist when I go down there now.

107 Roast turkey is very tasty but it has to be prepared right. Brine the shit out of it. And whether you cock its spatch or not, use your own thermo and DONT over cook it. Ignore the gov’t idiotic advice to cook to 165. It’s shoe leather by then. Cook to 140 at the center of the breast, pull it out of the oven, and let it rest for 8-10 minutes. Or cook to 145 and do the same thing if youre squeamish.

Or better yet, slow smoke it using an ‘intelligent” smoker — I use MasterBuilt — at low heat until it reaches 140. That will take a long time, but the reward is succulent turkey with a little taste of smoke.

Last night's dinner, though, was bigger: some cheese tortellini, hard little pillow-shaped things that take a good 16 minutes to cook, and 1/4 pound each of grass-fed beef, 80% lean. I cut the meat into small mini-steaks and grilled them in some olive oil in the non-stick pan, sprinkling paprika and taco seasoning on each as I seared each side during the last 5 minutes of the tortellini. I forgot to heat some sauce, puttanesca sauce I picked up at World Market, almost until everything was ready. Microwave, and zap! Hot tasty dinner.

Last year I cooked a 20 pounder for my fam, which is my son, two bros, two SILs, and one SIL's mom. same crowd this year, but I said no to the turkey and am doing two roasts, a chuck and a pork. Brown gravy, Angel biscuits, cranberries, relish tray. Others are bringing mashed potato casserole, green bean casserole, orange salad, and carrot cake. My son doesn't like any kind of cake, so making hot fudge sauce for him to have with ice cream.

Me.

We stopped having turkey about 10 hears ago because everyone finally admitted that they liked all the fixin's but not so much the bird. So we did ham and an oven stuffer roaster chicken (because there has to be a bird on the table.)

Then a month or so ago I bought a deep fryer to see if it was true that the turkeys tasted so much better. Lo and behold, they do.

So now it's ham and turkey.

I did a mostly oat (vs flour) topping with my vegan butter and my kids loved it so much, they wanted it again, so I made it 2 days in a row this week (it did let me use the other 1/2 of the cran bag and the old on sale pomegranates, so I wasn't gonna say no).

I did that probably 20 years ago for the family. Also had a noche buena salad, another nice twist, with crunchy jicama, tart apple, sweet oranges, all in small pieces and slices, with pomegranate seeds and a light citrus-based dressing on top.

My mother always made oyster dressing. She also made a traditional stuffing for the bird. Even as a child I could not stand oysters.

216 Which reminds me, it's time to swing by the "international market" (I think this one is Persian-owned, though there's a lot of SE European origin stuff, along with Lebanese). They always have the most amazing pomegranates (yuuuge, beautiful, the best reall) and fantastic fuyu persimmons, which are the basis for a great salad.

Pomegranate seeds
Fuyu persimmons, sliced thin
Crisp apple (granny smith or fuji)
Honey and lime or lemon juice mixed, as dressing
Optional: candied pecan pieces

Beautiful colors, great texture and bright flavors, very seasonal, and simple.

218 Pecan pie … way too sweet for me. Maybe if the ratio was one bite to one ounce of smoky Islay scotch. The only pie I like is apple pie, and even then only if it’s on the less sweet side.

219 The turkey stuffing I used to make was cornbread stuffing, the gizzards cooked with some onion and chopped and grated carrots. Add an egg or two. Add a bit of stock and then fry it on top of the stove before stuffing the turkey.

My family loves turkey on Thanksgiving and we are doing a turkey 'trial run' today because I buy extra thighs ( dark meat for the yum!), roast them and then turn them into gravy early in the week. It's one less thing I have to do on Thanksgiving Day and we get a meal of fine dark meat the day I make the gravy.

PS. Call me sentimental, but the entire celebration on Thanksgiving makes me REALLY proud to be an American. I get emotional every year knowing that it's our tradition to give thanks as a nation.

288 I make currant sauce for Thanksgiving. Beats the hell out of commercial cranberry sauce, or even homemade cranberry sauce IMO.

It's really easy to make if you have a good candy thermometer (note that the ones you see for five bucks in the supermarket do not qualify as "good"). Scientific recipe follows:

Put your currants in a pot and simmer until the currants get "all swole up", then mash the hell out of them. Strain out the skins and seeds (or I guess you could leave them in if you need the fiber). Add an amount of sugar roughly equal to your original weight of currents (a lot of recipes lowball the sugar... a mistake). You don't need pectin, apple juice, or anything like that.

Boil gently until your candy thermometer indicates your desired consistency. I like jelly, myself. Keep an eye on it ALL THE TIME. Like just about any jelly, it has a tendency to boil over without warning, and you will have an unholy mess to clean up.

Add a good glop of ground cinnamon, stir, wait for it to cool somewhat (but not so long that it sets) and pour into a Pyrex bowl for refrigeration.

I agree. Properly brined and roasted (for both we use the Alton Brown method) it has a lot of flavor and is essential for making good gravy and stuffing. St. Alton does not recommend cooking stuffing in the bird (he prefers to put aromatics in the cavity), but we love a good stuffing and it is so much better in the bird that we do it anyway and it does not seem to dry it out. The stuffing has all the aromatics that would be included in any case, so it seems to be a win-win approach.

We only make turkey for Thanksgiving most years, though. Christmas tradition is a standing rib roast, and New Year's and Easter get the ham treatment.

Not-so-Tasty – Even though they look somewhat like a large chicken or turkey, they apparently didn’t taste like either. According to early reports by sailors, the birds did not make particularly tasty meals. Though they would eat them fresh, sailors usually salted the birds to preserve them, like dodo jerky.

378 I love the fried turkey. As we had 20 for dinner last night we made 3 10 pound birds. Fried, smoked and cooked in a wood fire on a bed of leeks in the trusty cast iron. As well as the confit legs. Not too many leftovers.

The leeks soaked up the juices and when puréed and added to the gravy were awesome.

Actually, we are driving back near our old home as my niece is hosting. She is one of eight (as I am) and most of her sibs will be there. As I mentioned most of mine are coming from afar to be there also. It will be a blast - R and I will take something that travels easily (or a last minute pick-up of something that Mrs. Kroger has prepared.)

382 We are having turkey, darn it! And my savory sweet potato casserole with sage, rosemary, roasted garlic and bacon, regular mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce, charred green beans, and dressing. Normally we have cornbread and white bread with sage sausage but it’s only 4 of us I am already trying to shrink the recipes. Oh! And pie. Normally pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato. We may have to go with just 2 of the 3. Or everyone just needs to drop what they are doing and come to my house because there is just so much food!

Small?

We're having chuck roast the Thanksgiving. Sear on all sides in bacon fat (or ghee) in a hot cat iron skillet. Take off heat for 5 min. Add 2-3 cups of water, cover loosely however you want to, and pop into a 350G oven for 2-3 hours. Yum
Start with squash soup (volunteer squash on the compost pile). We will have our lovely home-grown carrots, and potatoes, homemade bread, and some sort of dessert I haven't decided on, yet. Maybe baked apples with toasted pecans topped with whipped cream. Maybe something else, don't know. I made all our apples into apple sauce for spouse, so don't have any apples ...

460 Most store bought turkeys are already brined. Watch it, you can get a salty bird.
Also, don't you folks use a friggin' thermometer? If you rely on the popups that come with the bird, you're overcooking the darned things.
We use a thermometer for everything... except chicken thighs. I want those things crispy, and radically overcooked.
My wife made the comment, after introducing her to a thermometer, that she was shocked to find women had been getting up early Thanksgiving day, for years, just to overcook their birds.

462 I don't *hate* turkey. I simply do not *like* it. At least not well enough to go to all the trouble to prepare it. Hubby says 'meh' as well.

Yes, I've had perfectly cooked, seasoned, moist turkey before. Yes, it was prepared "correctly"... yes, it had flavor and was excellent carrier for potatoes and gravy and stuffing and cranberry sauce.

It's the flavor of the meat which I don't like. You know, how some people don't like oysters or vanilla or cilantro or venison or whatever. Like that.
