Is this crazy? Mayo under turkey skin

Postby T-monks » Tue Nov 20, 2018 4:29 pm

Lately I've messed around with using mayo on my steaks on the rare occasion that I sear them in a skillet (I normally reverse sear them with a kiss of smoke.)

For the last few years I've smoked my turkey (spatchcocked!) - I usually just follow meathead's recipe, which calls for rubbing a mixture of oil and herbs under the bird's skin before putting it in the smoker.

The other day I had an idea: What if instead I made a mixture of herbs and mayo to rub under the skin?

Is this crazy? Or genius? Or both?

I've never been a fan of separating the Bird from it's Skin so that would be nothing that I would do - - - - cute youngin :tup: :salut:

I can tell you that Rudy's rubs their turkey (they just use the breast) with mayo B4 smoking.

Oh I see you ain't from Texas so you don't know Rudy. Rudy's is a local chain that evolved from a single location and unlike many similar outfits they keep their quality up.
