Turn your barbecue into a culinary stage with our delicious Maple Bourbon Spatchcock Turkey recipe, perfectly rounded off with aromatic grilled vegetables

  1. Ingredients:
  1. Brine:

  • Place the turkey in a food-safe container and fill it with the brine. Make sure the turkey is completely covered. Leave it in the fridge overnight or for about 1 hour per kilo
  1. Preparation:
  • Remove the backbone of the turkey with poultry shears. Preheat your smoker to 135 ┬░C and use medium-strength smoking wood such as hickory or pecan.
  • Remove the turkey from the brine, rinse it thoroughly and dry it. Combine butter and maple syrup in a small saucepan as a binding agent for the Helvetic Barbeque Sauce Rub and for coating during cooking.
  • Coat the turkey all over with the binding mixture. Season it evenly with the Helvetic Barbeque Saugu├Ąt Rub and leave it to soak for at least 15 minutes.
  • Place the turkey in the smoker with the breast side up. Cover parts with foil if they get too dark.
