    Those look great. It looks like you cook them direct, at what temp and about what time? I would guess 350 about 45 minutes?

    Cool Egg Carton. By the way, the coffee rub is delicious.

    @jaydub58 John I just made a batch today. Coffee Rub (turkey, chicken, beef & pork) Equal part: Instant Expresso Ground coffee Equal part: Brown Sugar ½ part: Black Pepper ½ part: Kosher Salt ½ part: Garlic Powder ¾ part: Ancho Chili Powder Don't worry on exact, just close on measurement. I used to use turbinado sugar but we like with brown better. This is pulled from MollyShark, Hungry Man, & Richard In Fl then tweaked. I find the ancho chili powder is far less expensive in the bulk spice area than the bottled area ( have used both light or dark version). I make it starting with a half cup Instant Expresso Ground coffee and work from there as it seems to store well if sealed. Note that brown sugar is whole part. image

    @CPARKTX Picked them up at HEB in Round Rock today. Also get this and use as a dipping sauce. image

    I never brine legs or whole spatchcock turkeys. Only when just doing turkey breasts.
