Learn how to truss a turkey or chicken in 5 easy steps to ensure a juicy, evenly-cooked bird. Our method uses only kitchen twine — no need for trussing needles. We're demonstrating on a 3 lb chicken; however, the steps for a turkey are identical — just on a larger scale.
Why not try something a little different this year for Thanksgiving? Our smoked turkey recipe starts out with a super simple dry brining process using Caboose Kansas City Southern Rib Rub. We use our Traeger grill to smoke and roast our turkey, but you can follow the same process with a simple smoker box on your grill and finish the roasting in your oven.
