Spatch Turkey time

Doing my first, a 13 pounder. I know you cook to temp, but how long will this take? I plan a raised grid at 350-400 dome temp.

    I seem to remember around 90 minutes.  Mickey's the spatchturk expert, maybe he'll chime in.

    Do you think it would work to cook the stuffing in the drip pan underneath the spatchcocked turkey?

    You could wrap it in foil and throw it in the drip pan.  Just don't overcook it.  Smoke is not good in stuffing (at least in my opinion).  The oven is perhaps a better option.
