Sounds like you have the whole turkey. The breast is the only thing you will be happy with. Some people grind the legs and make turkey salad or sausage . Not worth it to me. I just filet out the breast.
Cut the breast meat into strips on nuggets a…
What problems are you having with the fire grate in the xl ?
First time I've heard of problems with it.
I've heard of problems with the grate in the large ashing over and snuffing out the fire. This is why people are replacing with the Hi Q , but …
