just finished a turkey in the bge - yummmm


For my Dad's birthday, 16 lb bird took about 2.75 hours @350. Can't wait to taste it. The on-line info I've found state 30-45 minutes per lb - that is totally off.
Injected 12 oz of Tony Chachere's Marinade
Rubbed Tony Chachere's seasoning and Cajun Olive oil, let set atleast 6 hours before heating. Remove when breast is about 175-180 internal temperature.

Never have heard of this, what is the brand and where did you get it? Curious as to what is in it. Thanks

What's bge?
BTW, Lucy wants a ham and a turkey because she found this weird recipe online where you cook the turkey in a bag. No, not a cooking bag, a plain brown paper grocery bag.

I'm still thinking the same thing.... i've done turkey breasts that took damn near 2 hours. i 16lb whole bird in less than 3 hours isnt possible unless your cooking it at 500 and turn it to dried out sand paper

Unless the digital thermo was incorrect, I took the bird out when breast temp was 180 degrees. The total time might have been 3 hours - I never cook it based on time but on internal temp. The cooking temp was prob b/n 325-375. Quite moist - just finished it. Even the little red plastic stick on the beast was popped out.

No, I did not go step by step. It's been a while so I can't tell you exactly.. I basically followed the main parts and winged some. It'll still come out unreal, regardless of what you do
