First BGE Turkey

Ok, it's my first turkey on the BGE.  Started about 730.  20lb bird.  Salt, pepper, butter, cavity filled with apples & lemons.  Couple of apple chunks for more flavor.

  • Me too, Hokiejacket. I just put in 2 8-pound turkey breasts. My first attempt very with turkey on my Large BGE. It's 25 degrees in Chicgoland, but spouse to be clear. This is my first cold weather smoke ever. I'll miss sitting by the Egg with drink and cigar in hand. Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Good luck to all first timers this Thanksgiving! Hope you can handle being elevated to a new status after everyone gobbles up that bird.

    Looks nice. What time are you eating?
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • I've been smoking turkey's for 28 year's on Weber's so this will be my first attempt on my Egg. In the past, I've kept the temp under 150 degrees for 6 hours so the smoke will penetrate and then about 3 hours prior to the target time, I crank it up to 350 and let it finish. It's always turned out wonderful; lots of smoke and really moist.  Let's see if it works again!

  • Put mine on at 9:30 here in the mountains of north Ga. Very cold outside but the egg temperature is dead on 350 this is my first egg turkey also. Good luck to all us turkey virgins.
  • Here is the final product. Want to get a smaller bird next year. White meat a little in the dry side.
