One hour into the cook..
This is a little over two hours into the cook...


  • Wow, that's a real nice color you have. Probably going to taste as good as it looks. Spices? Wood chunks?
  • looks great. .. stick a piece of foik over it to slow down the browning....and baste, baste baste!!! looks like you have plenty of good juices down in that pan, and i'm betting plenty of more in the cavity...
  • Thanks! Recipe is great and easy to follow. I do have the foil over it but the egg did get to 350 for a short time. That should be okay right?
  • Thanks. No spices but did a butter paste before it went on and a half a beer. I am using just a few hickory chips.
  • yep, not a problem, just keep an eye on temps.... all looks good and on track!! . . .

    Here is what my first turkey looked like.

  • I am a new BGE owner and want to try this. Yours looked great - any tips for a beginner. I plan on doing a 14 pounder on a XL egg. Brine yes/no, temp, place setter?
