    It's pretty easy to time. If you finish within an hour of the meal, you're good to go without FTC. Most turkey is served at room temp, anyway, warmed with gravy.

  • Yes. Just took it off and applied FTC.
  • Could someone please tell me the meaning of FTC? Thanks

    FTC = Foil the meat wrap in towel and put in dry cooler. Foil towel cooler. Keeps food very warm for a long time.

  • No FTC......just a  very loose tent of foil while it rests if done too early.
  • Love The Egg thanks for the explination.

  • Thx everyone, had it in the cooler for about a hour n a half and it was steaming hot when I broke it out. Successful first spatchcock turkey on the BGE!

    I put the ham in the cooler and cooked the turkey. That way you get the better skin.
