Kelly B’s Family Recipe: Tasty Mix and Match Moo and Gobbler Soup

Grill Tips, Grilling, Kelly B's 101

Do you ever find yourself staring into the fridge wondering what to do with your leftovers? Kelly B came up with this recipe after discovering turkey stock in his freezer and leftover burnt ends in his fridge. Instead of letting the food go to waste, he invented this masterpiece. If you don’t smoke your own briskets or points to create burnt ends, don’t worry. Just order some from your favorite BBQ restaurant.


1 Turkey Carcass from previously cooked and eaten turkey (smoked, baked, or fried)
6-8 cups of water or enough to cover carcass
2 tsp. cracked pepper
1 cup broccoli (1-inch crowns)
1 cup cauliflower
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup sliced carrots
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley
2 cans black beans (drained)
2-3 cups smoked burnt ends


  1. In the water, boil the turkey carcass until the meat begins to fall off the bone. Add a few cubes of chicken bouillon to strengthen the flavor.
  2. Once the meat has fallen off, clean the bones out. You might have to use a screened strainer scoop to retrieve the smaller bones.
  3. Bring the stock to a boil, then turn it down to a simmer.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot, including your leftover burnt ends. Simmer for 30-45 minutes and serve. It’s that simple!

Pro tip: Serve this meal with Kelly B’s Smoky Cast-Iron Corn Bread.
