Default Recipe: Simple Barbecued Turkey (pic)

Simple Barbecued Turkey



Ingredients
1 12-14 lb Turkey, thawed
1 batch Patio Daddio Big Bird Bath
1/3 cup Olive or Canola oil
1/3 cup Your favorite BBQ seasoning

Method
Submerge the turkey, breast end down, in the brine and cover the bucket
with foil.

Wrap the bucket with old towels, or (even better) a sleeping bag.

Let the turkey brine for 8-12 hours (guideline: 45 minutes per pound).

Important: The bird must be kept at 40º or colder at all times, so monitor
your ice and add more as necessary.

Remove the turkey from the brine (gently) onto a large sheet pan.

Let the turkey drain about 20 minutes.

Start your fire and prepare for indirect cooking at medium-high heat (about
325º).

Pat the turkey dry with paper towels.

Smear the entire surface of the turkey with the oil.

Sprinkle the entire bird with a moderate coat of the seasoning.

Add your favorite smoke wood chips (soaked) or chunks to the coals (I
recommend cherry or apple).

Oil the grate of your grill/smoker.

Cook the turkey indirect until the thickest part of the thigh reaches 165º
(about 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours).

Remove the turkey from the grill/smoker onto a platter, tent it with foil and
let it rest for 20-30 minutes.

Carve, serve, and enjoy.

Thanks for sharing.

Sounds good John!! I've been cooking two birds on Turkey Day...like to keep one simple (think I might try this version) and get all crazy with the second (exotic brines, injections, different rubs etc).

Thanks for posting!

Hey, John! What a work of art. Do you think I can get the same results by using my ProQ Excel bullet smoker?

Sure! I don't see why not. Heat is heat, and smoke is smoke.

I'm not big a big fan of Turkey. But I do confess that a cold turkey and stuffing sandwhich on rye bread the day after Thanksgiving got me through a lot of Nebraska v Oklahoma football games. G-B-R!

They don't have turkeys on that small island off the coast of New Zealand?
