I am not sure how the tradition got started, but each year we host my wife's family for Thanksgiving (this is our tenth year running). We have done everything from going out to eat to catering in the meal.
I bought my first BGE last spring, and after a few too many coctails this Fourth of July (also a family gathering on my wife's side), I made the announcement that I would be cooking the Turkey this year on the BGE.
I somewhat forgot about this bold statement for about three months until my wife reminded me that I made the Bold statement. Thus, my research started on the forum,but did not take long. Thank goodness for Mad Max and his recipe!
Here are some picture of my first attempt at this feast:
4:30 Central Time - the Prep
23.5 lb Turkey
Icing the Breast
Butter Paste, Seasoned and "Wined"
