Default PBC Turkey

Has any of you smoked a turkey on the PBC? I am going to give it a try for thanksgiving and was curious as to how your turned out. I reckon I will use a couple apple chunks since I hear it’s easy to over smoke. I will be hanging it and there isn’t a good way to use a pan for drippingsso I reckon the drippings will add to the flavor when they hit the coals. Also, what rub should I use? What’s your thoughts?

I followed the amazing ribs recipe last week. Came out gbd for sure. I have a homemade drum, so I had a second rack for the gravy pan. If you're going to drip right on the coals, I'd probably go no wood if you're experimenting with Thanksgiving dinner...don't want to over do the smoke...used the Simon and Garfunkel rub mix on the same site.

I do them on my PBC every year. They turn out awesome. I use the PBC turkey hanger. You can also use the hooks if you don't have one of them. I really like Kosmos Dirty Bird Hot. Usually takes about 3 hours...I aim for a smaller size bird just because I don't need any more than that.

I'm doing my turkey in the PBC this year. I did a test run a couple weeks ago with a small turkey, and it turned out well. I have learned my lesson, though. Whatever time the recipes say it takes to cook the turkey, I'm putting it in at least an hour before that. Already have the turkey, and will be doing the dry brine on it tomorrow night so it'll be nice and ready for Thursday.

PBC turkey I'd great. Be sure to use an instant read thermometer and not the pop-up gizmo if it has one. Best of luck and happy turkey day.

I do a turkey on the PBC every year I’ve had it. The turkey hangar works great and definitely takes away the worries of it coming off the hooks. For seasoning, I usually use Plowboys Yardbird but this year I’m going to try Q-salt. You’re right about the lack of drippings for gravy but if you can finish the turkey early and hold it in the oven or dry ice chest for an hour or so, you’ll have plenty of juice in the bottom of the pan it’s resting in for that. One other thing I like to do is inject with Creole butter which ensures juicy and flavorful meat (especially in the breast. I just use off the shelf stuff which is plentiful this time of year by the frozen turkeys). The timeline they give in the PBC website on their holiday turkey recipe is spot on for me so I’d go by that.
