Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • Done! Gotta say good, not great. My spatchcock chickens always rock, but this turkey was just ok. Looks great, though!

    Great looking bird! I have to ask, you say it wasn't "great"? What brought you to that conclusion? too dry, not enough smoke, soggy skin, etc... I find that I learn the most from mine and others not so great cooks. Thanks!

    I did a turkey 2 weeks ago and it was awesome. It was a fresh not frozen breast.
    I learned to buy brand name such as a Butter Ball or Honeysuckle . A few years back ,my brother and I both bought store brand from stores 300 miles apart . Both were dry and never got another.
    The 7 1/5 # was cooked indirect at 350* and done in about 2 1/4 hrs. DP Raging River.

  • @porta - I guess it was dry, not really tender and not much "turkey" flavor.  I bet @gk59 is right, brand name - and fresh.  This was frozen and not the big guys.  Skin was crispy, though!

    Brine that thang!  I've done smoked turkeys as well, and had little luck with just smoking.  The ones I've brined have turned out much better.

  • Brine the breast over night and cook to an internal temp of 155. That is how we do the and they are great every time.

  • Brining it is! Thanks!

    Yep... I brined my first turkey last Easter and I'll NEVER go back.
