Recipe: Jerk Smoked Turkey

first_img24 to 303.5 to 4 Jerk turkey recipe for thanksgiving Caribbean-Americans jerk their turkey for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner.Most Caribbean-Americans in Florida has adapted to the traditional American celebration of Thanksgiving that occurs on the last Thursday of November annually. What they have discovered as they join their American neighbors in celebrating Thanksgiving is that not having a turkey for the customary Thanksgiving dinner is like having Christmas dinner in the Caribbean without roast chicken and/or baked ham.However, Caribbean Americans prefer having a Caribbean touch at their Thanksgiving dinner. In order to create this touch Jimmie Jackson, the 2013 winner of the Publix Cook-off at the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival, provided this recipe for Jerk Smoked Turkey.Jimmie says he uses a brine for the jerk smoked turkey ( He says this is optional but it does make turkey tastier). The turkey gets some of its savory and rich flavors from this brine. He, however, cautions the cooks to be easy on the salt because they will be required to add JJC jerk rub on the big bird.Ingredients for the jerk smoked turkey:1 Dressed Turkey (approx 12 t0 30 lbs)2 quarts cold water2 quarts vegetable stock or water( but less flavor) 3/4 cup sugar¾ cup kosher or coarse salt2 tbsp all spice berries2 dried bay leaves1/2 dried bunch of fresh thyme5 oz JJC  hot dry jerk rubPreparation: in a large pot combine vegetable stock, sugar, salt, allspice berries, bay leaves and thyme. Simmer over medium heat for about 12 to 15 minutes until all sugar and salt has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow it to cool down. Add cold water to mixture. Place turkey in plastic container or Plastic trash bag and place in a bucket. Once you brine your turkey over night or up to 32 hours remove turkey for brine and place on a pan and allow it to rest. Pour all excess liquid away and pat turkey dry with paper towels. Next rub your turkey completely with JJC hot jerk rub and now the cook is ready to smoke or roast the turkey..Jimmie says Turkeys can be unpredictable but there are some important factors determining cooking time. These factors include: the thickness of the breast, how well the bird is defrosted and how long it was left at room temperature.Below is a rough guide for how long it will take to get the temperature in the deepest part of the breast to 160* and the thigh to 170* ( Please have a good thermometer!!! Make sure it’s calibrated). Please note that the turkey can also be roasted if the cook doesn’t have a good smoker. 18 to 243 to3.5 12 to 142 to 2.5center_img 14 to 182.5 to3 PoundsHours  at 325*last_img read more

first_imgWith just three runs added, Rory Burns perished lbw for 30 in Gabriel’s next over courtesy DRS and Zak Crawley (10) added 20 with Stokes for the fourth wicket before also being given lbw on review, to become Holder’s first wicket of the morning. At lunch, the hosts were reeling on 106 for five with their captain Ben Stokes unbeaten on 21 and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler unbeaten on nine. After a quiet start to the morning, England lost their first wicket of the day to be 48 for two when right-hander Joe Denly was late on a defensive prod and was bowled by Gabriel after adding four to his overnight 14. Resuming on 35 for one after only 82 minutes were possible on Wednesday, England’s batsmen found themselves pegged back by an accurate Windies attack in seam-friendly overcast conditions and were quickly under pressure. West Indies had the chance to remove Stokes 10 minutes before the interval but Kemar Roach put down a difficult low diving catch at long leg off pacer Alzarri Joseph, after the left-hander failed to control an ambitious pull. England batsman Joe Denly is bowled by fast bowler Shannon Gabriel (out of picture) on Thursday’s second day.center_img Gabriel, who has bowled with consistent pace, has taken three for 38 while the accurate Holder has picked up two for 24.

Adam Lewis: IRP – Tennis needs to rethink structure & betting relationships to win its integrity battles

first_img Share Adam Lewis sports law QC has stated that tennis needs to readdress its relationship with betting if the sport is to diminish corruption and match-fixing.Yesterday, Lewis who has led tennis’ independent Integrity Review Panel (IRP), revealed the findings of a two-year study researching the sport’s match-fixing, corruption and betting-related issues.At a press conference in London, Lewis outlined that the IRP had found ‘that corruption had taken root at the heart of tennis, particularly at the lower levels of the game’.In its study, the IRP surveyed more than 3,200 professional tennis players, with 464 athletes stating that they ‘had first-hand knowledge of match fixing’.Leading the investigation, Lewis notes the unique make-up of professional tennis, which supports a global tournament framework in which athletes compete primarily on an individual basis.The IRP details that the lower and middle ranks of tennis, are simply too open to betting breaches, with bad actors having easy access to competing athletes, coaches and family members.Combatting match-fixing at the lower levels of tennis, Lewis and the IRP believe that the sport faces both structural and betting-related challenges.From an operational viewpoint, the IRP states that there are too many professional tennis players, and recommends that the governing bodies of the ATP, WTA and ITF reevaluate their ranking systems and tournament frameworks.In addition, governing bodies should move to restructure the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), which was found to be severely under-funded, and operating without any betting expert.Structurally the IRP further recommends that governing bodies implement athlete education programs, teaching tennis integrity to the next generation of players.The IRP further believes that tennis integrity is hindered by the lack of cooperation between the sport’s stakeholders; governing bodies, tournament organisers, coaches, national bodies and bookmakers.In the presentation, Lewis highlights data gaps between stakeholder parties, which have made corruption and match-fixing difficult to prove or convict.From a betting-related standpoint, the IRP recommends drastic measures to curb potential corruption, with the panel endorsing a drastic reduction in the live scoring data supplied to bookmakers.The live-scoring data reduction should lead to bookmakers discontinuing their match/tournament market inventories at the lower levels of tennis.At present, ITF syndicated live match data is supplied by Sportradar AG, under the terms of a $70 million five-year agreement. Sportradar monitors all-levels of professional tennis including ‘Challenger’ and ‘Futures’ tournaments.Responding to the IRP’s recommended data restrictions, Sportradar stated that the panel had been heavy-handed in its proposals and that ‘prohibiting data partnerships would not solve corruption’.Further supporting integrity, the IRP proposes that all ITF sanctioned tournaments should end their partnerships/sponsorships with bookmakers.Reacting to the IRP’s integrity publication, the four governing bodies of pro tennis – the ATP, WTA, ITF and Grand Slam Board – yesterday released a joint statement, supporting the panel’s findings and “agreeing in principle” to implement all the recommendations.

RMG optimistic following glorious Goodwood success

first_img ITV secures three-year British racing broadcast deal August 5, 2020 The partnership between Racecourse Media Group (RMG) and Goodwood Racecourse led to the successful broadcasting of last week’s Qatar ‘Glorious’ Goodwood Festival. The five-day meeting, which was broadcast worldwide, had attracted additional interest from North America, and with the sport seemingly growing in popularity in that region of the world, organisers are hoping the increased interest continues.When asked about how the partnership could help expand UK racing to a North American audience, Seb Vance, Director of Communications and International TV distribution for RMG stated: “We are seeing more interest from broadcasters in the region. NBC have for the last couple of years shown live coverage of the Investec Derby, and added Wednesday’s Sussex Stakes and this month’s International Stakes for the first time this year, which is really encouraging. Hopefully, the number of days will increase next year too.”The added broadcasting couldn’t have come at a better time, with viewers around the world witnessing history as Khadijah Mellah became the first UK jockey to wear hijab, winning her race and the Magnolia Cup in the process. Vance concluded by stating: “We produce a World Feed for NBC, so all commercial messaging is stripped out. We also produce a bespoke Racing TV International feed for our wagering broadcasters, which includes TVG, NYRA and HPI.“We believe UK racing is the best in the world and our remit is to generate widespread TV exposure for our shareholder racecourses and their sponsors, so we target all corners of the globe. “We hope other events such as the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury, Coral-Eclipse at Sandown, and QIPCO Guineas Festival and Darley July Cup at Newmarket might also resonate as they are premium racing events, which attract the cream of Europe and beyond.”ITV’s viewing figures for the five-day race meeting also saw a boost at this year’s fixture, with the broadcaster reporting an average audience of 573,000 this year, compared to 523,000 last year and 513,000 in 2017.Peak numbers are reported to have jumped by nine per cent to approximately 755,000, compared to the 689,000 reported last year.
