  • Joyce,without a brine and a temp of 350º you may as well make a smokey pizza.....[p]Brine it and cook no less than 350º....even if the temp bumps up to 375º, its no biggie, it just cuts down your cooking time. Also rub the birdy with some good oliv…
  • Joyce, cook the turkey at a solid 350º, below that its not fit for the dumpster.

  • Gloria, I do them all the time on the egg.[p]Brined bird, cooker at 350º, bird in Vrack, in a drip pan on top of a pizza stone, or firebricks. 15-20 per pound. Wrap the wing and leg tips in foil to avoid burning.[p]I rinse, pat dry and mist the bi…

  • Rib-Rob, sounds good, tha IS one expensive cut of meat too isn`t it![p]Mop [/b]
  • Freak, from what I gathered, you simply 'grill'...[p]Mop [/b]
  • Wardster, thanks for the lead.....was there any distinct flavor that came out with that recipe/technique that you could pinpoint or did the 'beef' flavor still come through?[p]Mop [/b]

  • Steve in KC, its amazing how the temp can be held when the butts are stacked one on top of the other in the cooler.....oh and the aroma when you open the cooler......heaven.....[p]Mop [/b]
  • Scottie, yeah but when you shred, pull or carve, the juices should be retained within the meat I would think....either way seems better than just leaving the meat open to the heat the full term of the cook.[p]I won`t say how long I take to cook butt…
  • djm5x9, I never thought of the plastic wrap but the amount of juice alone from the butt in foil was incredible.. I can just imagine what it would be like held in tight with the saran wrap........ [/b]
