This is my first year with my XL EGG. I've had it since April. Never tried a turkey till yesterday when we were hosting the big dinner with both sides of the family over at our house. The pressure was on! I woke up at 7am to fire up the egg and put the 24lb bird on. I followed MadMax's instructions to the letter; and, needless to say, the results were unbelievable. Breast meat and dark meat were amazingly moist, flavorful and both perfectly done. In addition, the turkey's color was picture perfect.

    Wow, love the tan, that's a picture perfect bird indeed. Did you use any smoking wood?
  • I used 2 soaked chunks of cherry wood. They were both the size of a large man's fist. Both burned through with only about 10% of the wood left after the cook. This ended up giving a definite hint of smoked turkey but not a smoky flavor.
