First turkey

edited 10:03PM in EggHead Forum
I have had the BGE for less than a week and I will be cooking a 11 lb turkey today. I have been searching the site and will be useing a stand up chicken beer can roaster in a drip pan. I am thinking of 300 degrees. How long should this take? Any help would be great.[p]mhmorg

    Use the same temperatures you would use if you cooked in your oven. That rule of thumb will hold true for almost everything you cook on a ceramic.[p]Prep is also the same and as for upright or on a rack it's pretty much your choice. I do mine indirect with a drip pan at 375º for 12 -15 minutes per pound. I'm sure others will chime in. Good luck and be careful with the smoke poultry can absorbe a lot and can throw some people off their feed. I let the lump I use add the smoke flavor.

  • Sundown,
    I've been using Cowboy brand, what lump do you use? mine doesn't seem to smoke much, have been adding a few hickory chips, have seen hickory chunks, is there a winner in chips vs chunks?
