Smoke "Super Buzzard" Turkey Recipe

After years of debating on whether or not to buy an Egg, my wife bought me one for Christmas and we have been cooking on it every weekend and loving every minute of it. I have now been tasked to smoke a turkey for our Easter dinner and I came across the Smoke "Super Buzzard" Turkey recipe online here. This is going to be first big bird cook on the egg. I have been doing chickens using the "Plate Setter" upside down with the rack on top a drip pan sitting on the "Plate Setter". The chickens have been great! Would I be able to cook the turkey the same way as I have for the chicken or should I use the "Vertical Roaster" (which I have for the turkey)being it is my first big bird cook? Thanks in advance.

    i like the turkey buzzard recipe, but the cooking temp on that recipe is too low, try it a 325-350 if you follow that recipe. mad max has a better recipe on the naked whiz site, talks about setup, cook, and gravey making, much better and easy to follow for a first turkey cook.

    Got to agree with fishlessman, the mad max version is really great!
