Dutch Oven Roasted Turkey

Roasting a Turkey in a Dutch oven isn’t any harder than roasting a chicken, the trickiest part is having a Dutch oven that is large enough.

This recipe uses a simple salt and pepper seasoning, but you can up scale it to your favorite poultry rub.

This turkey may be served with vegetables cooked in another Dutch oven, or if you have limited cookware it can be served with a salad.

4 onions

17-20 lb (7 to 9kg) turkey

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

1 orange

1 lemon

Equipment

15" Dutch oven

  1. Slice the four onions and place in bottom of large 15” Dutch oven.

  2. Rinse the turkey in cold water, drain, and pat dry. Rub the salt and pepper all over turkey.

  3. Place orange and lemon inside of turkey, then place the turkey on top of the onions.

  4. Bake for 3 hours in dutch oven. Use 10 briquettes underneath and 30 on top of dutch oven. Replace coals every 45 minutes, or when burnt out.
