So I ended up cooking 2 birds today
One 14 lb bird and an 11 pounder
Cooked them both mad max style but kicked the temp to 340
On the second one i used duck fat instead of butter on the bird . Duck fat will be the staple now as it's easier to spread , way more delicious and the tan on the bird is amazing
I didn't get picks of the birds cut but

This is what I got image<img

    Where do you get the duck fat?
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Bird looks good, curious about the gravy as well.  Tried this method a few times, bird is always good, gravy has been hit or miss depending on the choice of wine!  My best results came from a wine called 2011 Catena Chardonnay, cause it was aged in oak barrels it already had a natural light smoke flavour, which compliments the egg smoke nicely.  FWIW
