Turducken

Deboned chicken stuffed into a deboned duck, further stuffed into a deboned turkey.

To defrost, you can simply thaw your Turducken in the refrigerator for 5 days or for rapid thawing place in sink or bucket with cool water for 24 - 36 hours.

1. Low Temperature Cooking - Conventional Oven (Most Popular Method)

  • Heat oven to 105°C. Place the bird on a rack and put it in an oven pan and set it in the centre of the oven and bake until internal temperature exceeds 74°C.
    Cooking time: Internal temperature is the best indicator. As long as it takes for the internal temperature to exceed 74°C is how long it takes for your turducken to cook. Please allow approx. 60 - 75 mins per kilogram. e.g. an 11lb (5 kg) Turducken may take up to 7 hrs. 
    Note: there’s no need to baste or cover with foil, although many of our customers do prefer to have their turducken covered in foil for the first 2 - 4 hours of cooking. If bird is not elevated on a rack, accumulated drippings may have to be removed from the pan every few hours so that the lower portion does not deep fry in the hot oil.

2. Slow Cooker - 'Crock Pot'

  • Set slow cooker to 'high'. Place your turducken inside and close the lid. After 1.5 -2hrs change setting to 'low' and cook until internal temperature exceeds 74°C.
    Cooking time: Internal temperature is the best indicator. As long as it takes for the internal temperature to exceed 74°C is how long it takes for your turducken to cook. Please allow approx. 60 - 75 mins per kilogram. e.g. an 11lb (5 kg) Turducken may take up to 7 hrs.

3. Barbeque - Outdoor Grill

  • Ensure propane tank is full. Light grill. For best results keep one burner switched to OFF. (Ex, one a two burner BBQ keep one side off; on a three burner BBQ keep the middle burner off.) Bring temperature inside grill up to a constant 105°C. Place foil wrapped turducken directly above the burner that has been switched off so it is not over direct flame. Close lid and cook until internal temperature exceeds 74°C.
    Cooking time: Internal temperature is the best indicator. As long as it takes for the internal temperature to exceed 74°C is how long it takes for your turducken to cook. Please allow approx. 60 - 75 mins per kilogram. e.g. an 11lb (5 kg) Turducken may take up to 7 hrs. 
    Note: Many BBQs are difficult to ensure a constant temperature. Check frequently for high flames and flare ups. Check internal temperature often.

4. High Temperature Cooking - Conventional Oven

  • Heat oven to 177°C. Place the bird on a rack and put it in an oven pan, or if you don't have a rack - cut up a couple of carrots, onions and celery, put in an oven pan, place your Turducken on top of the veggies, add some white wine and water in and set it in the centre of the oven and bake until internal temperature exceeds 74°C.
    Cooking time: Internal temperature is the best indicator. As long as it takes for the internal temperature to exceed 74°C is how long it takes for your turducken to cook. Please allow approx. 30 - 45 mins per kilogram. e.g. an 11lb (5 kg) Turducken would take up to 4 hrs. 
    Note: Using a high temperature we recommend basting the Turducken during its roasting time every ½ hour to keep it nice and moist. Use its own drippings mixed with water and white wine.
 
NOTES: Your Turducken is fragile when hot. 
This bird has no bone structure to hold it shape.
Be sure to keep it on or in it’s cooking container.
Remove the Turducken carefully from the oven/grill/slow cooker cover immediately in foil and allow it to rest for at least 30 min before moving or serving.
Meanwhile, you may want to make some gravy with some of the drippings.
With strong spatulas inserted underneath (remember there are no bones to support the bird’s structure), carefully transfer the Turducken to a serving platter or cutting board.
Remove the stitching by pulling on one end of the twine while holding the Turducken and present it to your guests before carving.
Be sure to make your slices crosswise so that each slice contains all three meats.
Please refer to carving diagram on the label.
