This past thanksgiving, I experimented with making turkey breasts and legs. (family didn't want whole turkey - they felt it too much goes to waste). The recipes are all on All were delicious, although the central texas style was the least favorite, maybe because it was a bit dry.

1.) Central texas style turkey breast (boneless, skinless):

2.) Lemon-garlic butter basted turkey breast (bone-in skin-on) and legs:

3.) and finally Tandoori-style turkey breast (bone-in and skin-on) and legs:

    The recipe is here:
    Basically, turkey is marinaded in Shan masalas (premade spice packs). Cooked indirect at about 325 until IT hits 160. While it's cooking turkey is basted in garlic-lemon butter.  
  • Wow, all three of those look fantastic. Great work!

    Thanks for all the praises! I've been getting subpar turkey results on Thanksgiving for years. This is the first year, almost everything turned out perfect....thanks in large part to the big green egg.
  • Awesome turkeys....
