Holiday Turkey cooking on the Egg
« on: October 17, 2017, 08:40:52 pm »

Approaching First holiday season with BGE - Iíve learned lots on this thread and need some simple tips on cooking holiday turkey. Gonna do a practice run soon. Appreciate any help and likely cooking 15-20 lb bird.

I've done a couple of turkeys on the BGE.  You can do turkeys the same way you do a beer can chicken if you have one of the BGE turkey butt plugs.  I generally fill it up with the Goya Mojo marinate, put whatever rub you want to on the bird and cook it at around 250.

I rub mine with lots of salt and pepper, put butter under sthe skin and smoke with pecan and hickory wood. Sometimes cherry or apple if Iím feeling Froggy.  Give yourself longer than you think you need.  Donít want to be waiting on the turkey to eat. I usually smoke mine overnight the night before and keep it wrapped in foil til lunch time.  Iíve also had good results injecting with Cajun seasoning and butter.

I usually smoke around 225 and figure about 30ímins a pound. You can do a bit hotter and be just fine. At 250-275 Iíd say 20-25 minutes per pound.  Use your thermometer and pull it when it reads 165-170.

Also youíre better off smoking two smaller turkeys than one big 20 lb monster.

Melt 2 pounds of Butter and a half can of Tony C's Cajun Seasons , Mix well and inject that bird good,  rub the outside with bacon fat and dust with the rest of the Tony C's  and smoke like you like it.

This is for sure.  I haven't done one in 4-5 years but mine seemed to get done earlier than I was expecting.  Don't know if it had anything to do with butt plug filled with marinate cooking from inside and out or what but instead of 4 hours it was done is 2 1/2 or so.
