I typically do the thanksgiving turkey. In the past, I have just set it up on my Kettle and cooked indirect at about 325-350.
Now that I have graduated to the offset, I figured I would want to do at least one before T-day. I am planning on running a hotter fire hoping to be in the same temp range, using pecan.
My one question goes to bird placement. I was thinking to put it right in the middle, rather then close to the fire box. the question is does it make a differnce if I put the cavity parrellel to the smoker or cross wise? Should I turn 180 degress half way through?
