Hi all, hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable Holiday. I did a 22lb. turkey yesterday, with a 12hr. brine, set-up inderect with v-rack and drip pan, cherry/peach/pecan/sugar maple chips, egged at 325 for appx. 5hrs. Done early so I wrapped in hd foil and towels, placed in cooler for appx. 2hrs. The bird had a very nice color before the cooler, but when I removed for carving it was very dark, but not burnt color. Still hot and juicy, everyone loved it, but the presentation wasn't there. Live and learn. DK
