and from here there’sabsolutely nothing that could go wrongwhat about this rod that came out ah idon’t know you know you give me once the turkey is carefully sewn shutit’s wrapped in foiland ready to hit the smoker so from herehe’s gonna head to the roasterand cook for how long about six hours ohi mean oh shootoh really that long yeah i’ll beback in six hours okay cool[Music]the moment has come right now we’regonna open it up and see if it’sactually finished let’s do it all rightcrack it openi don’t where are you at so you pulledit to the edge here you’re kind ofpeeling back the foilit looks awesome the skin is kind ofturned golden brownand it looks super tender yeah it’s hardto not just want to take a bite out ofit right nowthermometer is inside we need to hit 74to be safethat’s about 165 degrees fahrenheit okaybro we’re at77 degrees we’re definitely in a safezone i’m excited seeing this justbecause i’ve never seen any turducken inreal life it looks completely worthdoingthis is my first turducken.
i’m excitedso far are you happy with the progressit’s uh looks like jamie is nottoday is day three and it all comes downto this yesterday we made the turduckennow it’s time to put that inside the pigand roasteverything together i’m not gonna lieyesterday was a bit rocky and i knowjamiewas not that happy with his work itlooked like someone threw a grenadeinside the turkey to be honest thetrunkinglooks good but it doesn’t look great butneither did i when i first popped intothis world but my mother still mostlyloved me regardless we ran into aproblem i totally covered it with foilwhich allowed a lot of the steam to stayin and the bird kind of exploded was agrenade one of the layersthat’s good you got jokes it’s good fortvgood for you bro sorry but listentoday’s about redemption we’re gonnahide that inside of a pig and we canstill get a nice cross section at theend of the day rightyeah one of the concerns is that duringthe rotisserie everything might untough from the bird as the skinis not really there so i’m gonna wrap.
the whole bird andcall fat what’s called fat call fat is amembrane that encases a mammal’sdigestive organ this is a pork call fatoh it’s gonna encase archer duncan andsave this videoi hope okay all right reallyhot so wrapping the call fat around itnowkind of keep it in this protective sacki’m having fun againthe turducken is all bandaged up nowit’s time to meetthe star the dry salt rub has alreadybeen applied to the outsidethe inside has been rubbed down with avariety of spicespaprika garlic powder salt pepperoreganoand a few secrets we have the whole pigright here now that i’m seeingeverythingat scale this is gonna be quite achallenge so firstall right i’m not gonna look i don’twanna look either i’m not look you justyou do itshove the pole all the way through thensecure it that’s how you hammer a pig’sbuttfirst in is last out starting with ourdessert packageapples that have been cored and stuffedwith brown sugarbutter and raisins then wrapped in abeef cauliflower.
we’re kind of replacingits lungs and heart with applesnext a meaty layer of holiday sausagemade by mixing their in-house chicagostyle pepperoniand spicy italian sausage so you’regoing to kind of massage this to theedgescreating yet another meat layer now it’stime for the birds to enter here it isbut is there enough spacein this cavity for them to think i’mholding it as wide as i canputting in the turducken oh it lookspretty goodman it looks it really looks pretty goodthat’s great that’s pretty cool oh mygod what a feeling nextpart cooked veggies shallots pumpkincarrots and potatoes so right now insidethe pig we have apples we have loosevegetables we have a whole layer ofsausage and then our turducken the onlything left to do nowis sew the whole thing up and get itover the fire as soon as possible time to put the pig on the spit let’s goone two threethat’s not lifeso we have to lift it over the cage yeahpig is in the spit.
we’re gonna tie thefeet to the cage and then get this babystartedthis is the final step securing the piglegs tied to the roller cagerods skewered through the belly to stopit from flopping around the charcoal isput in placetrim enough time to get it rollingthere’s no competitorshow long do you think it’s gonna takefor this to roast i’m hoping eight hourswhat’s the best case scenario we’redrinking at four o’clock eating at sixo’clock and sharing delicious food thatis safe to eat with some good friendswith a challenge like thisthere are no practice runs we’ve got oneshot to nail itand right when you start regainingconfidence something will absolutely gowrongnonsense engineering maintenance get hisass over herei thought the exploded looking turkeywas our only problem it’s all going tofall apart the weight is going to tearthe pigthis machine is simply not meant for apig this sizepregnant with 15 pounds of bird we’rereally running out of time and i’m justgonna go for that right now okayjamie attempted to stabilize the pig butthese stainless steel rods are toosmooth to stay in placeso the impromptu idea what jamie’s doingright now is he’s taking some steel wireand kind of creating acorset he’s gonna wrap that around a fewtimes and hopefully.
that’s gonna hold itin place but we don’t know for sure andthe clock is ticking soall i can say don’t rush it make sureit’s done properly yeahall right we’re turning it on hopingthat it’s a bit more stable now notsliding around so muchbetter it’s better it’s definitelybetter we’re gonna go with it we’re gonna put the box on get it hotmope hi byeme oh what’s holding it legsum this is brutal i feel pretty bad forjamie right nowi just want to adjust this leg becauseit’s hitting the top of the boxand if i can just pull it back maybewe’ll be back in the gamewhat about this rod that came out ah idon’t you know you give me it’s kind of like everything went wrongone issue after another after anotherit’s not like we can just redo it realquick we can’t just like re-boil somepasta we’re gonnaat least pull one skewer out right okaythat one’s outokay spinning now you have a pigon a rotisserie normally it’s not thatbig of a deal because it’s like hollowon the inside but this pig has 12 to 15pounds ofchicken meat inside its gut so everytime it’s rotating it’s sloshing backand forth like a fat guy sprintingso it’s in there it’s cooking we’regonna have to come back in five sixhours and see if this is gonna work atall.
