Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Question on vertical roasting a turkey

So, the wife decided to sign us up to host Thanksgiving this year.  I agreed provided that I got to do the bird on the egg.  She of course had no objection to this since I do all the cooking anyway :)

Last weekend I went to a class on grilling turkey at my local egg dealer and got a lot of great info.  Based on what they presented, I've decided I'm going to go with the vertical method.  I've got the necessary hardware however I lost the notes I took at the class and am missing two important pieces of information.  First, what temp. should I have the grill at?  I seem to recall the guy at the class said 300, but I could be off.  Other posts I've seen seem to say 350 - 275.  Second, about how long per pound should I be looking at if I'm going at whatever the recommended temp is?  I'm planning to do a 16 lb bird.  I've done some searching here and elsewhere online and there seems to be a fair amount of variation as to time per pound.

Thanks in advance!
