    Brine thy turkey!! There are all kinds of brines on the internet.I use a maple syrup brine,brine for 24hrs and once you do you will never cook another with out it.I do indirect at 500 for 30min gets the skin nice and golden, then drop heat to 350 cook until internal temp is 161 wrap in foil and take of the grill.14lb-16lb turkey.If you want to get fancy smoke thy turkey low but lots of smoke apple,pecan etc. for about an hour main goal is to just smother the bird with smoke(after you have brined it of course) then if you have a deep fryer drop it in.If done right you will trap all the smoke in a fried bird.We call it the"triple lindy"in my family.
