First Turkey

My first post, new to community but I've been reading posts for a while. I just completed my first Turkey and it was a success thanks to everyone here. It took almost 3hrs at 325, very moist.

    Looks Great!  You may want to try a spatchcocked Turkey with Mickey's coffee rub sometime. - Quick and delicious as well!

    Great looking bird. Did you brine?

    No, I wasn't able to brine since the bird was already injected , which I didn't notice until after I purchased.

    Great job...I have always done the Thanksgiving Turkey in the Weber..Now I have the Egg..So I plan to do a couple of dummy runs before then. I am loving the idea of a spatch Turkey. What weight was your bird and is that the large Egg?

    I have done a 17lb on a large with no problem. I think as long as it fits, you can go with it.  Good luck!

    I just did my first was well and want to thank all of the folks on this site for the advice that they have provided. I did a lot of reading, put a lot of great ideas together and dinner came out fantastic! Mine was an 18 pounder and it took just about 3 1/2 hours at 330. Not exactly sure of the exact time because I used the remote thermometer (first time for that as well) and really paid attention to temperature vice time. I brined mine, but don't know what spatchcock is yet, so will figure that out another day.  The photo shows the turkey at about 130 internal temperature. Regretfully, I did not get a photo at final, but believe me, it came out great.  Cheers, Bob

    Nice job, bird looks good and moist!  The Egg makes everything that much better, Its ability to cook amazing meals full of flavours and textures is second to none.   After my first taste and shortly thereafter purchase, It has officially ruined restaurants for my wife and I!
