Beer can turkey for Superbowl

So I attempted my first beer can turkey ever on the egg for that sporting event that happened yesterday. Kept it pretty simple. Injected it with Tony Cachere's Creole Butter and then rubbed it with Tony's. Set it on a throne of Fosters and put it on the egg at 350 indirect with cherry wood for smoke. I was figuring it would take about 15min a pound so my 16lb bird would be done in 4hours. I was wrong. Took 3 hours. Oh well. Wrapped it up in foil, placed it in a cooler with some towels and made the long trek of about 4 blocks to my buddies house.

here we are about to start cooking

Almost done

And served up at my buddies house.

Sorry for the crappy phone pics, but the battery in the camera was dead. Everybody raved about how great the turkey was, saying it had great flavor and was so moist and juicy. I even had a guy tell me that he hated turkey but that he really liked mine. So I guess it was a success. I was a happy man.

    Great looking turkey
    The Egg does a great job keeping them moist
    Looks like you nailed it

    That looks fantastic! My first thought was that a can of beer was going to get lost in a big turkey but then I read that you used a Fosters and all was right with the world again. :laugh: Good job, it looks perfect, I can almost smell it from here.


  • Looks like it came out great. The creole butter is injection is the my favorite.
