T-Day Bird on the BGE

Doing a 12# turkey that I wet brined over night. The Egg is up to temp and I'll be putting the bird on around 10:00 this morning. This is the first time using this brine. The main ingredient is 1 gallon of Modelo Negra beer. Pics to follow. This time I'm using peach 1/2 splits mixed in with the charcoal.

Da Bird.



They had inserted this pop up thing (to tell when the turkey was done) which I removed. The skin split where it had been inserted. It was done in 3-1/2 hours. If I wanted an indicator to determine doneness, I would have stuffed the bird and included raw popcorn in the stuffing!

I like smoked food. I do not like the rubbery skin that results though.

Looks great. Fruit woods go well with poultry. I use apple.
