Turkey Cooked Over Wood Fire Smoked and Roasted In The Bush (87 days episode 15)


I never had the chance in Patagonia to get a bird as big as a turkey, but here in Maine it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without the Turkey. So I'm going to go out to my camp in the woods to slow roast and then smoke a turkey over the fire until it is just right. For the most part, I will be smoking the turkey the same way that I smoked and roasted all the fish I caught while I survived in Patagonia those 87 days. There isn't quite enought time in the day to give the turkey the full smoking I would like, so I'm compromising and half-smoking and half-roasting over the fire for almost 7 hours until it is golden and juicy. I also brought along some Brussels sprouts, acorn squash, and apple to cook in the fire. The brussels sprout will be cooked on a stake and roasted over the coals. The Squash and apple will be buried in the coals of the fire until they have cooked through. This is going to be a turkey fit For a king.
