  1. Sauté the finely chopped onions and garlic in about 2 tbspn of olive oil for a two or three minutes then add a touch of thyme.
  2. Add Sausage meat and cook just enough to start releasing the fat.
  3. Add Salt and Pepper
  4. Remove from heat and add eggs and mix in well.
  5. Add breadcrumbs to make a stiff stuffing as they will soak up the fat from the sausage meat as it cooks.
  6. Add roughly chopped hazel nut and Chestnuts
  7. Add a generous helping of freshly grated nutmeg.
  8. Stuff the brined turkey.
  9. Put on an INDIRECT heat in the BBQ at 250C for about five and a half to six hours and baste every hour or so.

Remember to check the internal temperature of your turkey with a thermometer to ensure its cooked right thought.
