Ordered a cornbread stuffing Turducken from Cajun Taste and recieved a rice and sausage stuffing instead. Tried to order from Heberts but they were already sold out for Thanksgiving. Filled the egg with Wicked Good lump with a light sprinkling of cherry chips scattered throughout. Platesetter legs up, water pan on platsetter, grid on top of water pan, 15 pound Turducken in V-Rack, V-Rack in Aluminum pan setting on grid. Had to bend the pan just a bit to close the egg. Temp. was 350-400. I will say this was a lot of heat for the egg to keep up. The firebox was full, and at 4 hours started losing temp. I had burned almost a whole egg full of Wicked good lump in 4 hours. Fortunately it was done. I checked the bird at 3 and 1 1/2 hours and it was at 150 degrees. Because of family and Thanksgiving day confusion at 4 hours and 10 minutes it was at 170. Should have been checked and pulled earlier at 160. Still delicious. I was going to try to make gravy with the drippings but there was very little. I guess the stuffing absorbed it. Definite smoke taste that was strong but not overpowering. I am not sure if the water pan helped. I did add water half way through the cook as it did boil off quite a bit. I will cook another one for Christmas and be ready for the problems on this bird. Cannot believe it burned all that lump. It is now 3:47 a.m. and I am going duck hunting. Will be back Sun. evening. Everyone have a great weekend. Capt. Dan
