Well, I did the bird with mixed results. The turkey (8 lbs) itself tasted wonderful but I need to finish it in the oven as it only had reached a temperature of about 140 deg in about 4 1/2 hrs. I used a brine and had the bird sitting over a pan of water and OJ. The bottom vent was open all the way and the daisy wheel was in the open position. The temp never moved much more than 200 deg. What am I doing wrong with the heat. I wanted to cook the turkey at about 275-300 yet I could never get there.
I have a large BGE and used a secondary grill placed over some firebricks.
