    Thanks Granny, I just did a spatchcock turkey and I had the temp wrong . I thought the breast was 180 and the thigh 160. I no better but to many Buds.
  • Bakeman,

    You will find it easier to hit those temps if you put the legs toward the back of the egg

    Thanks little Steve, I am a rookie here. Still trying to learn.
  • The back of the egg is naturally hotter than the rest. It does work.

    Why is the back of the Egg hotter? I think I agree based on looking in the top vent, butt not sure why.

    You will have juicy dark meat (raw) and have to use plenty of that bud to get the breast meat down your throat

    Good stuff, I can't even begin to tell all the things I have done (wrong) with my egg.  I (and you) should continue to blame the booze.

    I think it's the airflow pattern but I try not to be too analytical (smiley)
