Rotisserie Duck With Drip Pan Potatoes

My friends at Maple Leaf Farms sent me a care package of duck, so I set out to shoot a video of my rotisserie duck recipe. Unfortunately, I didn’t really pay attention to the recipe as I was filming. “I know what I’m doing” I thought to myself…hah. I grill the duck and the potatoes, serve dinner, and everyone loves it. A few days later I edit the video, and only then do I notice things I missed. Like…the glaze. And the herbs to stuff in the cavity. Turns out, I made a grilling basics video – rotisserie duck with drip pan potatoes. So…here’s the recipe that actually goes with this video. A few points: If you only eat duck breast medium-rare, this is not the recipe for you. These duck breasts are well done – if not, the legs are too tough to eat. (If you want medium-rare duck breast, buy them separately, and use this recipe on the grill.) Make sure you have a sturdy drip pan. Duck renders out a lot of fat – …

Why fold a beef tenderloin for the rotisserie?

Why Cut a Beef Tenderloin in Half for the Rotisserie?

Commenter Cary had a question about Tuesday’s Rotisserie Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish Mustard Crust recipe: In direction #2 you say to “Cut the roast in half, truss the two pieces together, then skewer on the rotisserie spit,” Why are you cutting it in half? I explain that in the video that goes with the recipe…which I thought I would have done by today. I always underestimate how long editing video takes, especially when you’re a noob with a brand new Adobe Premiere license, like me. So, because I need to stall for time the question deserves an answer – why do I cut it in half? And, what does that actually mean? There are two problems to solve with Rotisserie Beef Tenderloin, both about even cooking. Problem 1: The roast is not even. The tail end is thin, barely an inch thick; the head end is a good four inches across. If I cook it as-is, by the time the head end is medium-rare, the tail end will be past well done. Problem 2: The roast is not very …

Rotisserie Turkey With Basic Dry Brine

Rotisserie Turkey is available in Paperback

Book launch week concludes with the paperback release of Rotisserie Turkey. For more details about the book, see last week’s New Cookbook: Rotisserie Turkey post. Rotisserie Turkey is now available as a $8.99 paperback from Amazon.com. The book has 29 recipes for whole turkey and turkey breast on the rotisserie, with drip pan stuffings, side dishes, and suggestions for making soup with the turkey carcass. Rotisserie Turkey is 140 pages with black-and-white pictures. Yes, I know, no one likes black and white pictures. I don’t like black and white pictures, either, but as an indie cookbook author, publishing in full color would have pushed the price up to the $20 range – and I don’t see the value in that. But, if you buy the paperback from Amazon, I do have a full color pictures for you. Rotisserie Turkey is enrolled in the Kindle MatchBook service. If you buy the paperback edition, you get the Kindle edition for free! (As I’ve said before, if you’re reading this post, there is a free Kindle Reader app for …

New Cookbook: Rotisserie Turkey

Thanksgiving is showtime for home cooks. It is our time to shine, pulling out all the stops to make a feast for family and friends. I write about rotisserie turkey every year on my blog. In early November, the questions start. A few trickle in early in the month, asking about strategy and tactics. As T-Day approaches, the volume increases, and the questions sound more nervous. On Thanksgiving, when I’m not checking on my own turkey, I spend the day on my cell phone – responding, coaching, cajoling, and in some cases talking people down off the ledge. Trust me – your Thanksgiving turkey will be just fine. After the turkey leftovers are done, and I’ve had time to recover, I gather any new questions and use them as the basis for next year’s Thanksgiving blog posts. This book is a collection of those years of blog posts and questions, cleaned up and rewritten when necessary. It gives me something to refer to when people ask questions: “Here it is, I wrote it all down …
