Has anyone ever spatched a turkey??


  • ribmasterribmaster Posts: 209 was good. I cut it up like chicken and can cook each piece to the correct temp rather than over cook breast to get thighs right.
    I grill therefore I am.....not hungy.

    I have a LBGE and spatchcock around a 15# turkey-about the largest you can fit without getting creative.  Cook at about 350*F indirect for around 2-2.5 hrs til 160-165 in the breast. I ice the breast for 20-30 mins before cooking so the thigh gets to around 180+ at the same time.  Most disregard the ice-put the legs toward the back (hottest cook area) and all should be just fine.  Very moist-just like a chix on steroids!

    I like 13 pounders cooked raised and direct at 375/400. Spatchcocked is about a 90 min cook. Very easy and good.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • Did one a few weeks ago. Excellent result. I'll inject next time.
