27 POUNDER - Turkey for the Work Crew

edited May 2014 in EggHead Forum
EDIT - Vanilla removes carriage returns on iPad. Annoying. ------------ Greetings friends, Lucky to have some cool people I work with who appreciate an occasional BGE delivery. Today's is pretty epic - a 27 pound whole turkey. Spatchcocked with organic herb blend, salt, and pepper. That's it. Going to let the mesquite smoke do the work on the flavor of the meat, and hope the skin gets crispy and delicious. I don't eat the wings or legs, someone will have to do those when I get in. :) It's easily the most I've had in there at once, poultry wise. I'll let you know how it turns out! Much love 8-Damien image

    Should be epic! I've found cooking poultry at 400 or above ensures crispy skin. Good luck.

    Indeed. My spatchcock temp is raised direct at 400*. Usually take about one and a half hours.

    How hard did you swing that cleaver to get that backbone out?

    That cleaver is sharp. Heavy.. Dangerous...

    Didn't. That monster really was enormous. That carved meat in that pic was only half if it. I gave the other half to someone who needed it. Thanks for the kudos.



    What I DID take, was a pic of the Roo after she stuck her head between the CGW swing grate to get her Scooby snack on. Those black eyebrows aren't natural. But, and I crack up when I see it, the new mustache really is cute on her hahaha. ...

    Looks great!  How tight was the fit cooked on the large?  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I went spider raised direct on the original stainless grate and I had a fair amount of room to spare.
