Camp Turkey Cook: KISS

Request that I post pictures from our trip, on how I did my Turkey on the Small Egg. Did it up right with ceramic holder with orange juice, olive oil and salt and pepper. In direct at 325, turning the turkey every 30 min. for even browning. Simple is good and fun.

First I have to to say great season for Nascar.

Only did a 7Lb. bird could have gone up to 10Lbs. this way.
Got to love the gravy.
Garlic mash.
The dressing.

Simple but good.

Was nice to have Clark and his Wife Ann for dinner, fellow Eggheads. Good Food and Friends.

It was a great week camping, food, and friends. Getting ready to head out again to meet up with Jupiter Jim for a Father Son Camp out and Fishing Tournament.


  • The Turkey cook has me drooling, or is it because of my age. :) However my intrest is in your camper. How long is that muther? and what do you pull it with? Peterbult, or a White Freightliner? Next time you camp in the upstate of S.C. let me know. Thanks Ronnie. :) :) :)
  • The camper is 33' Keystone and I pull it with F250 Diesel Super Duty. I don't even know it's back there in towing it. This dam truck will pull a house down. Ford Built Tough. :woohoo:

    You got that right! I've got two f150's one is a 1998 extended cab 4.6 with over 200 thousand miles on it. The other is a super crew 2003 with 124 thousand miles. We love our Ford trucks. ;)

    Nice bird! I only have a small egg and will be doing a turkey very soon. Do you think a 13lb turkey will fit? It's about the smallest I ever see at the store.

    As for Nascar; it didn't take Rick Hendrick to shake things up. Junior is now teamed up with 48. I think this is the last thing Rick can do for Jr. and Jr. Nation. He will have the exact same equipment as the 48. If Jr. doesn't produce now, he will driving for someone else in a couple of years.
