NO SKIN....hence the "naked" part. He pulled the skin off and replaced with bacon!

porkaholic: I just never considered that. Did you brine at all?

I've done a turkey before, whole, skin on with thick cut bacon over the breast on my ECB. Brined for 24 hours prior, stuffed with apples and had fresh thyme and rosemary inside.

I left the bacon on until the thighs were about 155-160 so the breast didn't dry out and the skin stayed in tact without burning. I took the bacon off and threw it out (waste of good bacon, but food safety and all...) and finished it off. Everything was done at the same time, and it was tender, juicy and wonderful. Skin was perfect.

Looks great Wampus.. thanks for the pics. Yea, no worries about letting the temp get high on the dark meat. When the breast is to your your target temp the dark stuff will still be moist.

I do not brine the turkey with this method. No skin and the bacon is edible, and delicious. Try it on a chicken first to see if you like this method. Just a note, when you skin the bird the leg/thigh section want to go really limp and move around so you have to deal with that.

With all other things being equal, will the self-basting rotisserie action produce a superior turkey the way it does my chickens?
