I am grilling my first Thanksgiving Turkey. I have a weber gas grill and have a few questions to submit to the board:
1. Do you suggest smoking the turkey or cooking it on rotisserie?
2. How long do you suggest cooking a 22lb rotisserie turkey, and at what temperature?
3. Can you suggest any marinade injections for the turkey?
4. typically how much gas will this require?
Comments are appreciated. Thank you
I suggest smoking with a rotisserie! Typically I like smaller birds (around 12#) and find them tastier and easier to handle not to mention, multiple smaller birds give you the opportunity to try 2 different things at one time and don't take as long to cook. Generally you cook turkleys about 15 minutes a pound @ 325 but it varies depending on the temp you cook at. Thigh temp should be 180 degrees (well 170 for me
) however you decide to cook yours. I strongly suggest injection marinating too; absolutely love it! Steve has a few good base recipes that are good jumping off points in his Marinades,Rubs book. No idea how much gas as I use strictly hardwood for the big day. Usually oak and some kind of fruit wood for my recipe.
Good luck! Have fun!
