A turkey question

I've been smoking turkeys for years, first brining them to provide flavor as well as moisture. This year, for the first time, I will be egging the turkey. I've seen from earlier posts that turkeys cooked in the BGE come out moist without the need to brine. Since the brine also contributes a desirable flavor, I'd like to continue doing it. I'm wondering if any of you have had experience with cooking a brined turkey on the egg. Is there a downside? I'd appreciate any input. Thanks.

    Not Sirius,[p]Brined Turkeys tend to cook a bit quicker...but I think that also applies to Brined Birds in the oven as well!![p]That's been my experience![p]Evans[p]
  • Not Sirius,
    I also brine turkey for the BGE. Works great, nice and moist with good flavor. I usually make my own brine, but will be trying Fire and Flavor brand this year. ([p]M

    EggspertMN, FWIW I did a store finder search and Lowe's came up in this neck of the woods (FL). Don't know if it's a regional thing or what products they offer...[p]Rascal
