Turkey Smackdown!

This should be tasty and fun today. Our friends Tom and Dorothy invited us over for Thanksgiving dinner. Tom wanted to cook a turkey and so did I. We decided to do two 16 lbs birds. I am doing mine on the BGE Mad Max Style. Tom’s is traditional oven style.

T&D have also invited another couple from our area and my wife’s cousin Tom from Tucson. Our turkey just went on the LG at 10am. I’ll let you know how it all shakes out.

    I forgot to mention, Tom is a professor of astronomy at U of A in Tucson and he will be bringing his telescope for us to do some planet gazing later tonight.

    Gazing should be interesting. We already know the outcome of the smackdown. :woohoo:

    If you can find an honest, impartial judge, I'll put my money on the Egged Turkey. Tell Tom he's wasting his time.

    I just basted the bird at 2-hours 30 mins., looking good. I will take a pic at 3 hours for you.

    The bird came off the egg in 4 1/2 hours.


    The two birds were served and I have to say Tom's was great. The BGE turkey did have the best dark meat.
