I did a partial Mad Max turkey. I didn't make the gravy.
Not quite done.
Done! Everyone was very kind in their compliments.
I've had my BGE 2 1/2 years but I didn't have the nerve to try a turkey until this year. I had fun doing it and I will definitly do another next year.

  • I'm about to attempt to make my first Turkey ever and am going to do this recipe. How do you like it? is it smoky? Too much of an urb taste? Tender? Moist? Cook time and how many pounds?
  • it will only be smokey if you add wood to your fire. .. if you start off with a clean burning fire that has been going for 45 minutes to an hour prior to putting on the bird, it will not be smokey at all.... if you want just a hint of smoke, add a single chunk of apple wood or pecan....if you follow my instructions and keep an eye on temps, it will be perfectly moist....

    nothing looks better than a MM turkey!
    I used apple chips and it wasn't too smokey for any of our guests. Didn't notice the herb taste at all. The bird was tender and moist. The turkey weighed 20.19 lbs.
