It sure looks great, was it more like a roasted turkey with smoke flavor, or a really moist smoked turkey? The reason I'm asking, is because when I smoke a turkey, I almost never eat it right away. I usually refrigerate it and slice it up for sandwiches later with assorted cheeses and bacon ala smoked turkey club sandwiches. So, I like a lot of the smoke flavor.

Interesting question. I guess I'd have to classify this one as option #1. It was like a perfectly roasted turkey with just a HINT of smoke. Usually, my turkeys are on the smoke (325-350) for 3 to 4 hours. This one was only 2 hours.

I agree with you on the "next day smokey factor" too. I literally JUST got done eating a turkey sandwich for lunch (literally licking my lips as I type this) and it was still so farkin moist that it has the texture of raw. Almost "rubbery", but in a good way. So moist, even the next day. Just a hint of smoke, which is usually not the case. Next day smoked turkey is usually VERY smoky in flavor.

I'm literally going to have to get another turkey before T-Day and try and duplicate this cook (on purpose) and see if it's the cook temp or not.


DANG that was a good sammie.
Wish I'd have made 2!

Just ordered one on Amazon since I had a gift certificate credit, but I guess I should have asked this first: Will it fit in a 18.5" WSM?

That turkey looked amazing. The Cannon is at Amazon for 18 bucks with free shipping on orders over 25. Might buy a Citrix book or something.

Can't say for sure. That pic on my drum is on a 22.5" grate, so it sure SEEMS like it would. I know that when it's mounted, it is kinda "offset". may also depend on the size of bird. The instructions on the Turkey Cannon says that it's intended for an 8-10 lb bird. I've never cooked one that's less than a 12 lb'er.

That one I cooked yesterday was about 12 lbs, so if you were to put on an 8-10 lb'er, I'd think it would fit, but can't say for sure.

Had the same high temp fast cook accident with my first UDS Turkey
Went out 1 1/2 hrs in to put in probes and it was 425 !
And done! Two hrs before dinnertime! And it was great!
Gotta try Norco's cannon advice and am glad to hear of your
Success.

Anytime I cook a turkey in the oven, I brine it for a day and then start it off in 500 degree oven for 30-45 minutes and then back it off to 325 till its done. It does make for some juicy bird. Yours looked great, nice job!

Looks like it'd be an excellent tool for the kettle, and for 18 bucks, I may have to pick one up and try it out!
