What's this?

Be sure to make plenty of this, because you’ll be smothering your entire Thanksgiving plate with it.

Ingredients

  • 4 Pound Chicken Bones and Chicken Feet

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 Carrot, Diced

  • 1 yellow onion, quartered

  • 2 Celery, Chopped

  • 1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar

  • Handful fresh parsley

  • 2 Sprig fresh thyme

  • 1 Head garlic

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 2 Tablespoon black peppercorn

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set temperature to 450˚F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Using 1 Tbsp olive oil, lightly grease a large sheet tray and spread chicken feet and bones out evenly. Roast for 90 minutes turning occasionally until the bones are golden brown.
  • 3

    While these are roasting, place the onion, celery and carrots on a separate sheet tray and toss with remaining olive oil. Roast alongside the bones for 25 minutes until lightly caramelized.
  • 4

    Place the contents of the sheet pan in a large roasting pan making sure to scrape up all the browned bits.
  • 5

    Add cider vinegar, parsley, and thyme. Add the roasted vegetables, garlic, bay leaves, and peppercorns to the pan and fill with enough cold water to cover the contents.
  • 6

    Adjust the temperature on the grill to 250 degrees F. Partially cover the roasting pan with lid or foil, and place directly on the grill grate. Cook for 6-8 hours, occasionally skimming excess oil off the top.
  • 7

    Using a large slotted spoon or spider skimmer, gently fish out the bones and discard. When all the large pieces have been removed, strain the stock through a fine mesh sieve into another large roasting pan.
  • 8

    Return the pan to the grill and cook an additional 3-4 hours or until reduced and thickened enough to cover the back of a spoon. Enjoy!
