Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Turkey Gravy

Ragtop99Ragtop99 Posts: 1,079
I'm doing the T-day turkey on the Egg, probably around a 16 lb bird.  SWMBO has stated that it shall be stuffed and that there shall be drippings for making gravy.  She asked the question of whether doing a turkey on the Egg would effect the quantity of drippings for making gravy.  Anyone know one way or another how the quantity of Egg drippings compare with oven drippings?  I'm assuming its about the same, but I have not done a whole stuffed turkey on the Egg.

The plan is to use the ice bags on the breasts, place it on a V-rack inside the drip pan, aim the drumsticks toward the back, and cook at 325* - 350* indirect until done.  Any other tips are welcome (that don't involve messing with her gravy, lest I desire to spend the overnight sleeping next to the Egg. ;) ).
