Thought I'd test out some turkey brats this weekend. My mom can't eat red meat or pork so I thought I'd try to make her up a brat that she could eat. I found a recipe here at SMF and altered it some. Here is a link to the original recipe. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/104885/turkey-sausage Below is what I used: 2 1/2 lb ground turkey *I didn't add any fat or anything else to help keep them from being dry. 4tsp garlic cloves chopped 3 tbsp chili powder 1 tbsp paprika 1 tsp cayenne 2 tsp cumin 1 tsp Penzey's chipotle powder 1 tsp mexican oregano 1 tsp garlic pepper powder 2 tsp onion powder Having never made turkey sausage before I was afraid it would be real mushy when mixing but nope, it was nice and firm. All mixed up IMO brats only belong on the grill. I hate cookin' 'em in the house. My wife does an alright job but she wasn't home so I cooked one up in a skillet. Unfortunately I forgot about and it was a bit crispy lol. Still edible though! No skillet view though! haha How'd they taste? If you're a spicy kind of guy you'l love 'em! Yeah.... it was dry but then again I didn't do the greatest job cookin it either. Personally I can tolerate a little bit of dryness if the taste is good and it was. They tasted great, but at my heat limit personally. Next time I'll tone down the heat and I think they'll be a keeper. Happy stuffin' yall.
