Whippin up a real simple smoked turkey for a coworker leaving at work. No brine, didn’t have the the time. Watched Malcom’s latest turkey video, he smoked it at 300° stuffed on a traeger. On the egg will that come out more moist stuffed or spatchcocked? This person wants traditional pulled turkey not a roasted with smoke so I’m almost thinking breast side down, spatchcock. Any thoughts?

    Spatched raised direct 375*ish. Breast up, butter and rub under skin if you want.

    Boy that sounds real good. I got an injector, can send that in good. I gotta PSWOO2, raised up into the dome or at the felt? This one’s about an 11lb bird. Using cherry wood.

    I use the top level of the CGS adjustable rig. That’s puts it a couple inches above felt. I go very light when adding wood chunks to poultry. It doesn’t take much. You’re guaranteed a gorgeous looking bird using that cherry

    I definitely post some pics. I think the D-rack on mine sends it about 4 inches above the felt. I could also put the d rack on the bricks to bring it down a hair.
