Thanksgiving is just around the corner and soon, homes all over the city will be filled with friends, family and the smell of home-cooked dinner. With our mild autumn in Ottawa, why not take advantage of the nice weather and grill Thanksgiving turkey this year!
Thanksgiving dinners tend to be pretty predictable. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and pie for dessert. When you shake things up and grill Thanksgiving turkey, your dinner will stand out. In addition, there are other benefits to grilling the star of your turkey day dinner.
Decrease Cooking Time
While cooking times vary depending on the bird and stuffing, most oven-roasted turkeys require around 20 minutes per pound in the oven. BBQ turkey only takes about 12 minutes per pound — saving lots of time on those bigger turkeys.
Free Up Oven Space
Unless you have a double oven, the turkey is the only thing that’s cooked in the oven on Thanksgiving, meaning all side dishes have to be prepared on the stovetop. With the turkey outside on the grill, you now have oven space to make some spectacular side dishes.
Keep the Heat Out
Usually, Ottawa is firmly in autumn weather by Thanksgiving. But this year, Thanksgiving guests could be arriving in shorts. Instead of heating up your home for hours, cooking a turkey inside, grill Thanksgiving turkey outdoors and keep your house cool and comfortable.
Harding The Fireplace has a wide selection of gas grills, charcoal grills and smokers to help you grill a memorable Thanksgiving dinner. Currently, we have an Extreme Savings Event on select Napoleon grills.
At Harding The Fireplace, we have over 4,500 square feet of retail showroom space devoted to fireplaces and BBQs.
