Turkey defrosted and spiced. I use tony's cajun shake, garlic powder and black pepper.
Put Turkey on metal cookie sheet and cover with the cheap fat bacon (takes almost a full pound) whole process take just shy of two pounds.
arrange coals like this. Yes I know this isn't a weber, but my father inlaw bought a cheaper version and I was doing this turkey at his place. I prefer the weber for sure.
Put the Turkey on between the coals like this. Leave the vent pretty much full open. I add Oak, and Maple chips on top of the coals every 30 minutes. Add coals if they start to burn out before your done.
12 minutes a pound cook time, and change the bacon out when the bacon is fully cooked. Remove all bacon 45 minutes before your done to allow for browning.
DO NOT TRY AND LIFT TURKEY WITH THE COOKIE SHEET FROM THE BBQ!Remove turkey from cookie sheet and transfer to platter. I use a spatula to loosen from sheet and two tongs to lift. Let rest for 30 minutes covered in foil. I messed up and only browned for 30 minutes because I got sidetracked. Skin was still tasty but the color was marbled.
ENJOY! You will likely never have a better tasting bird.
BEWARE! your neighbors will likely hate you after smelling the turkey, bacon, and BBQ smoke for 3 hours
