Now is the Time for Us to Say "Thanks" to YOU!

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 27, 2019

Immedia Lighting ServicesThanksgiving Day is the perfect time to remind one another of the many reasons there are to be grateful. We gather on this day to be thankful for what we have, for the family we love, the friends we cherish, the success we have had, and for the blessings that will come.

Thanksgiving is more than the festivities, it gives us time to ponder the lessons that we have learned and how we can spread happiness around, to look back at all the great memories and good people who came into our lives. We appreciate you, our customers and clients, so much.

At this time of year our thoughts turn gratefully to you with warm appreciation. Our best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving.

Turkey on the Grill This Thanksgiving

The best turkey is grilled turkey

This is one dish that you should literally always make—even if it means two competing birds on the table—is a barbecue-inspired, spiced, brined, and smoky grilled turkey. It is, as the kids say, legit.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons hot smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried savory
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon mustard powder
  • teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup (packed) plus 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • ½ cup kosher salt
  • 1 12–14-pound turkey, halved (backbone removed, breastbone split)
  • Vegetable oil (for grill)
  • Special Equipment
  • A disposable foil pan and 1 cup wood chips soaked in water at least 1 hour (optional); oven thermometer

RECIPE PREPARATION

Mix paprika, savory, cumin, mustard powder, cayenne, and ¼ cup brown sugar in a small bowl. Transfer 3 Tbsp. spice mixture to a medium bowl; mix in salt and remaining 3 Tbsp. brown sugar. Set remaining mixture aside for the next day. Cover turkey with dry brine, packing on until you’ve used it all. Chill on a rimmed baking sheet uncovered 8–12 hours.

Thoroughly rinse turkey to remove brine; pat dry. Rub with reserved spice mixture and let sit 2 hours to bring to room temperature.

Prepare grill for medium-high, indirect heat (for a charcoal grill, bank coals on one side of grill; for a gas grill, leave one or two burners off) and lightly oil grates. If using wood chips: Scatter over coals, if using a charcoal grill; place in a disposable foil pan and set over lit burner, if using a gas grill.

Place turkey, skin side up, over indirect heat, breast halves facing each other, with legs closest to direct heat. Place oven thermometer in center of indirect heat zone; cover. Grill 20 minutes, then rotate halves so neck end is closest to coals. Check temperature inside grill; thermometer should register 325° (open or close vents as needed). Continue to grill turkey, checking for doneness after 20 minutes, then again every 10 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of breast registers 150°, about 1 hour total.

If desired, carefully move turkey over direct heat and turn skin side down. Grill to lightly char skin, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a platter and let rest at least 30 minutes before carving.
