Turkey Test Run

300 degrees for about 3.75 hours on a 15 lb bird. Took it off at 160 breast. It was just a shady brook "natural" which basically means the 3%wt brine solution doesnt contain plutonium. It came out pretty good. Of the 10 or so turkeys I've cooked, this was the first my dad had. He's always been a 28lb bird stuffed etc so it was fun to see his reaction to the texture of a smaller unstuffed bird. I did put one chunk of Adler on the coals and it was gave the bird a lot smokier finish than I was expecting. I was expecting a very subtle smoke and while good, it was much fuller than I would want to serve for the traditional holiday bird.

  • Did you cook it direct or indirect?  What kind of rub was on it?

    Thanks, just posted my test turkey as well, skin was darker, but very moist bird.

    Indirect. The rub is just some onion and garlic powder (granulated), salt, pepper, and celery seed.
