Traditional turkey

Trying a 12 lb butterball on the LBGE today. I wanted to try a comparison with an oven roasted thanksgiving bird, so I just brined it in apple juice and chicken broth, sprayed with Pam and a little Lawrys seasoned salt. Sticking with 325 dome for 4-6 hours. The next bird will be spatchcocked, mustard and rub.

    I can't wait until Thanksgiving to try a turkey.  My family only eats turkey on certain holidays so I don't get a chance to cook them often.  Let us know how it turns out and pictures would be great.

    Did two 12# turkeys on my XL last Thanksgiving. Brined, cooked at 350º to 160º breast IT.

    @williamadamsesq I spatchcock turkeys a lot and never used mustard. In fact your the first I have seen it. Might be good, please tell. @BobsBGE try just turkey legs. Do this all the. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • I should have used my maverick to monitor the temp more closely. Turned out pretty good, but probably left on about 45 min too long.

    I prefer just the breasts.  Took 'er off at 162, cooked at 350.


    The Dude: Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
