Where are you finding chunks of cherry @Plano_JJ? I've only found chips.
Some GREAT recommendations. I have also brined the turkey and do think it is the best way to go. The air Drying step also helps with a much crispier skin. I also typically flip the bird when I do it in the oven. Agreed on all these points. Does it make any difference when doing it in the Egg? Also, have any of you had a problem with Charcoal that has too much smokey flavor in it? I bought a bag of Cowboy Charcoal and it was too strong of a smoke flavor. The bag said it was flavor neutral, but I was tasting hickory flavoring for days. I bought some Big Green Egg Charcoal to compare. Needless to say, I am worried about turkey jerkey.....
I did a Mad Max Turkey last year and not only was it the best Turkey I've ever done on the egg, but the best Gravy ever! http://www.nakedwhiz.com/madmaxturkey.htm
