Beer can turkey

Thread Starter 

Could you do beer can turkey laying the turkey on it's back and inserting a beer can/ can with holes in the side of the can  oriented upwards to allow steam etc to moisten the bird?

Welcome to SMF!

 

Would you mind going over to roll call & introducing yourself so we can all give you a proper SMF welcome!

 

Also would you update your profile to include your location.

 

For your turkey question, I'm assuming that the turkey won't fit in your smoker standing upright. If it would fit standing up I

 

have smoked several beer can turkeys using the big Foster's beer cans. I don';t think it would work with the turkey laying

 

down because the bottom of the beer can would not be exposed to the heat source and I don't think you would get the

 

steam coming out of the can.

You can always smoke the turkey a while then tent it in a pan on a rack.  Fill the pan with beer.   Kind of like foiling ribs.  Then you can remove the tent and finish for a bit back on the smoke.

 

Never done it but I cook turkeys in the oven like that all the time.

Welcome to SMF.  When you smoke your turkey, please post some photos.
