Tasty Turkey Contest Winning Recipe

“First, I pruned the apple tree out back. 🙂 I got a nice little stash of applewood for the Big Green Egg!  I stuffed the turkey lightly with 1# sautéed Mexican chorizo from Goose the Market. I rubbed it with olive oil, sprinkled lightly with Arizona Seasoning (Penzey’s) and a little herb de Province and fresh ground pepper. Added about a cup of white wine to the pan for moisture. Tuck it in for a nice nap in the Big Green Egg with a generous amount of applewood at 210-220 degrees.  Propped up with a potato on each side—the potatoes were awesome too!”
