Has anyone cooked any of these creatures? Thought I might try to smoke one this weekend, but thought I would seek some advice before I waste $30.00 bucks.

Somewhere in the archives is at least one discussion of're early, it is usually brought up around Thanksgiving.

To re-iterate my statement in the referenced thread. I highly reccomend against a bready stuffing. An all meat turducken is much juicier in my experience.

I prepared a Turducken for thanksgiving last year. I didn't smoke it though. It turned out very good, moist and tasty. The pictures are posted at the below link. I also did some posts on the process including brining and those links are listed below also.

The hardest part of the process is the deboning. If you have the patience then do it yourself. It took 9 hours to cook in the oven at 225 degrees. I did include a cajun inspired stuffing. The brining was probably responsible for it staying moist. Now that you brought it up, maybe I'll try doing it again and this time smoking it..

As Kim mentioned above Andy and I made a Turdunken last February for a contest. Deboning the birds wasn't easy but it came out good. Andy has pics on his web site. Got the recipe off the Food Network web site - I think they also showed or had a link that showed how to debone the birds.
