Grill Your Best Summer with the Turkey Cannon

Share Article

A Utah manufacturing company takes patio grilling to new heights by infusing the flavor of your favorite wine, juice or beer deep into chicken and turkey for fantastic results. The cylinder-cooking method also decreases cooking time.

Fire up the grill and get ready to prepare a feast your family and friends are sure to remember with the Turkey Cannon from Camp Chef, a premiere outdoor cooking manufacturer based in Logan, Utah. The Turkey Cannon infuses moisture and flavor deep into your favorite poultry: chicken, turkey, goose or pheasant.

“We’ve been huge fans of beer can chicken for years,” said Brett Bennett, Camp Chef’s product engineer. “So we put our heads together to come up with a way to fit a beer can turkey into the grill. Most grills won’t let you stand a turkey upright over a can holder and close the lid.”

And, while the invention doesn’t actually sit the bird over the can of liquid, the results are just as impressive. First, pour the beer or wine into the cylinder of the Turkey Cannon. Then, place the poultry over the reclined cylinder. Moisture infuses deep into the breast of the bird, infusing flavor. The grill roasts the turkey from the outside.

“I love how well the Turkey Cannon roasts both chickens and turkeys,” said Chef Bryan Woolley, culinary director for the Love to Cook culinary education program. “The breast meat is so tender and moist – and the skin was so full of flavor from the grill.”

“While you certainly can grill a chicken on the Turkey Cannon, I recommend serving up turkey for any large parties,” Woolley said. “Turkey is a very healthy meat and it’s something everyone seems to love to eat off the Turkey Cannon.”
