Ingredients
 

  • 5.4 kg 12 lb turkey
  • 6 medium onions, chopped
  • 12 garlic cloves
  • 5 litre cheap cider
  • 4 10g chicken stock cubes
  • 8 heads star anise
  • 4 tbsp black peppercorns
  • 8 bay leaves
  • 4 large sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 250 g runny honey
  • 450 g dark brown sugar
  • 300 g salt
  • 6 Satsuma's
  • 1 Satsuma juice

Instructions
 

  • Blitz together the onions, garlic and some of the cider until you have a smooth paste.
  • Pour into a large saucepan, and then add the rest of the cider, spices, herbs, stock cubes.
  • Stir to the boil, and then simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Turn down the heat and add the sugar, Satsuma juice, salt, honey and dissolve, probably take 15 minutes, and then cool.
  • When cool, place the turkey into the brine with the Satsumas.
  • Place a large plate on top, weighted down to keep the bird in the brine.
  • Chill well for 12 hours, at the most 24.
  • When ready to cook, set the bbq to indirect heat, 150C 300F, then place the bird on a tray at the other end, away from the heat, cover, and cook for 4-5 hours, basting occasionally.
  • You must keep the heat constant, 150C 300F opening the lid only when you need to.
  • You will end up with a beautifully moist, cooked, delicious turkey.
