  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Hickory chips, soaked in water for one hour
  • 1 gallon boiling water
  • 1 onion, sliced

Use an instant read meat thermometer to check for doneness (160 degrees).

  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • ΒΌ cup fresh orange juice

  2. Stir in the fresh orange juice and transfer to a bowl. Let cranberry sauce cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator.
