Smoked Wild Turkey & Cranberry Log Recipe

Outdoorswoman Alley Stanley gives us a perfect holiday season wild game recipe for those that turkey hunt. Alley uses the Provider Crosshairs rub and cooks on a Traeger Grill.


  • 2 cups cooked wild Turkey (domestic is fine too)
  • 2 TBSP “Crosshairs” (The Provider)
  • 2 TSP coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 TBSP Dijon mustard
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 celery stalks sliced
  • 1/2 cup Craisins
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • 3 TBSP parsley snipped
  • 2 cans crescent rolls, refrigerated
  • 1 egg – separated, white only


  • This recipe is perfect for fresh cooked Turkey, or leftovers. It works wonderfully with wild or domestic turkey meat.
  • If cooking turkey meat specifically for this recipe, season with crosshairs and garlic powder.
  • Preheat Oven or Traeger to 375°
  • Cube cooked turkey into small pieces.
  • Finley chop celery, parsley, and pecans.
  • Shred cheese.
  • In a large bowl, mix together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, honey, craisins, and all chopped ingredients.
  • Season to taste with crosshairs
  • Add shredded cheese, mix well
  • Lay triangles of crescent rolls out flat on a baking sheet, end to end, so they create the shape of several diamonds stacked in a line.  Press seams together.
  • Fill the centre of the dough with turkey mixture.
  • Gently fold the corners of the triangles over the centre to create a wrap.
  • Brush the dough with egg white and place onto the Traeger or into the oven for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
