    Will Turkey Fit? Any Pointers?

    I will be hosting my first Thanksgiving this year and my family has never had grilled turkey. We are thinking of getting approximately a 16 pound bird. I just want to make sure it will fit. I am using a Dyno-Glo 4 Burner Gas Grill Model# DGF493PNP-D. Does anyone know if this size bird will fit...

    Whole Chicken Brine

    Hey all, I hope I'm not beating a dead horse here, but I have a question regarding whole chickens and brining them. I'm planning on smoking two spatchcocked chickens this coming Sunday and I was wondering; Is it 100% necessary to brine these birds first? If I don't, what are the potential...

    WSM Spatchcock chicken question

    I'm doing 4 whole chickens on my WSM 22 for 4th of July. Is it ok to put two on top rack and two on the bottom rack? I know normally you would never put chicken on top with something underneath but wasn't sure if it would be ok to put 2 of the birds on that lower rack? Thanks in advance for...

    First (and second) Keto Smoke

    I've been on the Keto diet for a few weeks now and grilling food fits into the diet very well, but this weekend was my first chance to smoke some "diet" food. I had family coming to town, so I decided to do an overnight pork butt. My normal rub is a secret recipe from my former volunteer fire...

    Whole chickens with Disco's guidance

    I started thawing 4 chickens a few days ago, figuring I'd have a plan by this weekend. Nope. Thankfully, I got a few tips from Disco (Preacher Man, I'm making pulled chicken tacos your way next time around). I combined the glaze and dipping sauce from his Cambodia Chicken with his Piri Piri...

    Meat-a-Palooza

    I wanted to smoke a standing rib roast for New Years Eve dinner, so I went to Costco a few days earlier and accidentally brought home a lot more meat than that. Since I was taking some time off from work for the holidays, I decided to spend a couple of days smoking a lot of the meat to freeze...

    Smoking Flavor Depth

    I was wondering about how deep the smoke flavor should reach in a turkey. Should it go all the way to the meat on the bone if done properly? I smoked a turkey last night that was done faster than I anticipated. While the outside of the breast was lightly smoked, the inner part, while juicy, was...

    First spatchcock chicken

    I read about the spatchcock method on here and had to try it out. Results were great. Rubbed with SPOG and Rosemary and put a little garlic butter on the breast. Smoked at 260 with a little pecan. Had a spike to 300, which was fine because it was towards the end and made the skin a little...

    Two spatchcocked chickens - one seasoned with Lawry's Seasoning And the other with Pork Barrel BBQ And a shot of the juiciness! First time doing a whole chicken, let alone a spatchcocked one. Smoked in the new smoker for 4 hours at 250°. The new smoker:

    Familiar with smoker, not with Turkey

    Greetings all, I have a 30" Masterbuilt electric smoker and was designated to smoke a turkey for this year's thanksgiving meal to accompany the fried turkey someone else is doing. I have seen many different posts with different suggestions, temps, and times for the cook but my smoker maxes out...

    Dry brine and Spatchcocked

    Usually wet brine and smoke turkey and am happy with results (moist and flavorful meat). Have to combat the challenge of breasts being ready before dark meat by finishing the latter in the oven. Want to try dry brining and spatchcock-ing (for convenience) provided I don't have to compromise on...

    Spatchcocked chicken for a Pot pie, lots of qview

    Nothing better than a good chicken pot pie with a crispy crust. Picked up a 6 lb chicken. Should be good for 3 or 4 meals. Started out with Carrots, celery, onions, & garlic. Added some chicken broth. Then put a bunch of garlic & butter underneath the skin. Dusted the bird with...
