Turkey a la Mad Max

We hosted a little Friendsgiving last weekend at our place. Decided to do my first turkey roasted on the Egg. Followed Mad Max’s directions from Naked Whiz and it came out beautiful. The seasoning is worth it. I threw in one chunk of pecan which gave a perfect hint of flavor. Main reason I’m posting, if you all need a roasting pan, I’ve included a link from amazon below. Pan is 14x12 and easily fit over the plate setter and held a 21lb turkey no problem. Happy cooking.

  • Which size egg do you have that fit that roasting pan well?  Large or XL?

    Great looking bird!

  • That’s a large egg. I’d imagine your standard 16inch roasting pan would fit on an XL. I also used some terra cotta “feet” from a planter to elevate the roasting pan about 1.5 inches off the plate setter to keep air flowing beneath the pan and prevent scorching.

    Looks awesome. I'm doing this in a disposable alum foil pan. have no interest in cleaning a pan like that. ;)
  • Have a few questions about raising the pan off the plate setter. Not crazy about aluminum foil balls under pan.
    Was anyone used a wire cooking rack to keep the pan off the plate setter ?
