I used the Weber Jumbo Joe to cook up some old school barbecue. Today it was a big pile of thick and meaty turkey necks.I started with three pounds of turkey necks and marinated overnight in Italian dressing. They didn’t look like much at this point but you can see how much meat is on here.I loaded the Weber Jumbo Joe with a full chimney of lit Kingsford and banked it to one side. I placed the turkey necks directly over the charcoal and put a nice char on each side.It took about ten minutes of turning and watching to get all sides nice and golden. You can tell from the picture that this smelled wonderful!
I placed the necks in a foil pan with about a half cup of chicken stock and covered it up with some aluminum foil. The pan went on the cool side of the grill and the necks braised for an hour with the lid on. Both vents on the Weber Jumbo Joe were completely open.
Here is a shot of the bird when I took the foil off.
I took the turkey out of the pan and back onto the cooler side of the grill. I reserved the juices that collected in the pan to make a little gravy.
The turkey necks got glazed with a 2:1 mix of Sweet Baby Ray’s and honey then were cooked with the lid closed for another 30 minutes. While the necks were finishing up I cooked some rice and made the gravy. It served up pretty nice.
