    This Year's Turkey

    I cooked the Thanksgiving Turkey on the grill with hardwood charcoal and hickory chunks. It was rubbed in olive oil, salt, garlic powder, fresh rosemary and thyme. It also had several heads of garlic, rosemary and thyme in the cavity. It was juicy, smokey, and wonderful.

    I built the fire on one side of the grill and cooked the bird on the other, with the cover most of the way on. It took an hour and a half to roast a 7.3 lb. turkey.

    Take a chance. Cook outside! You won't regret it.

    That is a good looking bird. I've done chickens like that, but never a turkey. Might have to give it a shot.

    Interesting...we've tried regular baking, and deep frying, but not that...maybe a future attempt.
    Looks great.

    There's not much that you can't cook on a good old Weber. Looks nice.

    You call that a turkey? 7.3 lbs. that's a chicken. I used to cook 20+ lbs on my Weber, I had a racks on both sides to hold the charcoal and added 8 briquettes on each side every hour. A 20 pound stuffed turkey took about 4 hours. Then the Weber died and my wife bought me a propane BQ, I haven't BQ'd since.

    This year we had a 23.5 pound turkey and only four people. My wife, son, daughter, and me. Wife just can't seem to scale down. She goes to get the turkey and picks the biggest one she can find, but we'll have lots of leftovers.
