Thanksgiving Turkey

I finally got a decent picture of the annual turkey that I make for the family. I brine it for 24-30 hours and then cook it on a 22.5" weber charcoal kettle, rotisserie style. It was a 23lb bird that cooked for just less than 4 hours. The dark meat turns out almost like it is smoked and the white meat is extremely juicy! Boom!

Nice bird!

We don't have a big Thanksgiving meal here but we do invite over friends that do not have family here in town for my annual Fried Turkey Fryday.

I smoked one bird and fried up two more. We had about 20 people over, a bounce house for the kids and plenty of wine and beer for the adults.

A good time was had by all. Happy Holidays to all my MN LSFers.

How big of a Turkey was it that you were able to do it in 3 hours on the Weber?

I have cooked Turkeys from 18lbs to 25lbs on the weber and usually they take about three hours. Depends if you get the wind, cold air but three hours is the key. You really have to have the coals measured out pretty good,

To many coals you have to play with the vent on the top.

To little it will take longer than three hours.

I have cooked Turkeys in -20 and 80 degrees outside, you just have to watch and listen to the weber and adjust the vent on top accordingly.

Snow- No injection with this method. I just let the brine do the work. I have injected turkeys before, but for this method, I just do the brine. Also- THANKS Everybody

Mickbear, that Turkey looks awesome. I meant to say that before I hijacked your thread with pictures of mine. Great job on that and it looks like it would melt in your mouth. Great job and thanks for sharing the photo with us....Kirk
