Default Conclusion

After much thought I decided to cook the bird whole with the meat probe into the breast, when it reached temp, I would temp the thigh meat and make a decision based on the temps.

I made up 2 ice packs using 2 x 1 gallon zip lock bags and put one flat the breast and the other I filled up and pushed up into the cavity as far as I could & let the bird sit out for an hour while I prepped the wsm.

About 5 hour cook at 325 with some applewood at the start --- please go here to see the results and pics http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=150598

I got a beercan turkey roaster to stand the bird up; it works great for cooking whole and allows the heat to flow into the center of the bird as well as around the outside.

Supposedly a 24oz beercan will also stand a turkey up and the bubbling juices from whatever is in the car will help with the cooking process.

That is a good idea and I considered it for this cook but I was nervous that it would speed up the cooking time on the breast and I was trying to slow it down. I will smoke a smaller bird next time and use this method with the cone like thing from my fryer.
