STEVEN RAICHLEN'S PROJECT SMOKE: Thanksgiving Comes Early
Airs Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019 at 1 p.m. on KPBS TV + Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 24 and Nov. 28 at 1:30 p.m. on CREATE
The secret to supernaturally moist turkey? The PROJECT SMOKE version involves a whiskey brine and a slow smoke over maple wood.
The traditional side dishes get smoked, too: bacon-stuffed barbecued onions, smoky creamed corn, and a smoky bacon-apple crisp for dessert. Even the cranberry sauce (salsa in this case) has fire thanks to the strategic addition of jalapenos.
Forget your oven: this Thanksgiving feast gets cooked in a ceramic smoker, upright barrel smoker, electric smoker, and stovetop smoker.
Just don’t wait until Thanksgiving to try it.
