REHEATING HOLIDAY ITEMS

Instructions on how to reheat your special holiday items from Fire Slave Barbecue.

Keep all chilled items in your refrigerator till you're ready to reheat. Make plans to start at least 2 hours ahead of your gathering. We recommend that you allow all frozen products properly thaw in your fridge as well. It is best if you leave the product in the original vacuum package (except smoked sausages). Please allow 1-2 days for proper thawing of large primal cuts. (Just overnight for small items). You can also place bag in pot with cool running water. Small vacuum packed meats will only take 10 to 20 minutes to thaw. You will need an instant read thermometer and other supplies depending on what you ordered. For slicing our brisket, it is absolutely necessary to use a really sharp knife (preferably a serrated slicer) or your brisket will shred apart. Refer to the video on how to cut.  

Smoked Whole Turkey

CONVENTIONAL OVEN

Set the rack so your turkey is closer to the top and pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Remove plastic wrap from Turkey. Place Turkey in provided roasting pan or your own. Pour about a half cup of water in the pan, just enough to steam up as the turkey reheats. (volume will vary on size of pan. Don't put so much that it's swimming.) As an option, use chicken broth instead of water and you can put a few tabs of butter inside the cavity. Now with some aluminum foil, cover the turkey and the pan and seal around the edge of the pan tightly.  Place covered roasting pan into the oven and let it get it to serving temperature. This will take approximately 1hr 30min depending on the size of the bird and the efficiency of your oven. If you have convection mode, this will speed things up a little. With your instant read thermometer check the breast. 145 degrees would be your target temp. After you've reached it, set turkey on counter to rest for a few minutes before you start carving it up. Enjoy! Once you've had an Oak wood smoked turkey, you probably wont have it any other way. FYI the pinkish color in the thigh comes from the smoking process. (It's not raw)

 

Smoked Porchetta / Pork Belly Lechon

CONVENTIONAL OVEN 

Set your rack so the porchetta is closer to the top of the oven. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the foil and butcher paper. You can use the foil pan it came in or transfer it to a baking sheet with grate/rack so its not touching the bottom of pan. Place porchetta uncovered in the oven. Your target temperature is 140 internal. It will take approximately 50 - 75 minutes to reach this. Check using an instant read by probing the center. 

CRISPING THE SKIN IN THE OVEN

Once you've reached your target temperature, you will now switch your oven from "Bake" to "Broil". Turn on the light in your oven and pay close attention. This part will take anywhere from 5-10 minutes. Observe as the skin bubbles. You'll need to stop before it starts to burn and smoke. 

Carefully remove the pan from the oven and place on counter to rest before serving. Don't forget to cut off the butchers twine and remove the stalks of lemon grass. To cut, stab knife through crispy skin to penetrate then press down to slice. Enjoy!

Smoked and Glazed Half Ham

CONVENTIONAL OVEN

Set the rack so your is in the middle and pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Remove plastic wrap from Ham. Place Ham in provided roasting pan or your own. Now with some aluminum foil, wrap the ham tightly and place in pan.  Place wrapped ham into the oven and let it get it to serving temperature. This will take approximately 50-75 min depending on the efficiency of your oven. If you have convection mode, this will speed things up a little. With your instant read thermometer check the breast. 145 degrees would be your target temp. After you've reached it, pull from oven, as you're resting it, unwrap and if you like, apply additional glaze while hot (pop glaze in microwave for 45 seconds to warm it up before applying.)  Start carving in and enjoy!

SOUS VIDE

If ordered in a Vacuum bag, pre-heat sous vide to 150 degrees and drop bag into water for 1.5 to 2 hours. Pull from water when ready, open bag and transfer to pan or serving tray. Add extra glaze if needed. Glaze should be reheated first in microwave for one minute or dropped into sous vide with ham in deli container. Use a brush to spread onto ham.
