Fattie Drippings onto my turkey


Joined Dec 26, 2012
I have an idea that I would like to get your opinion on, I have a meadow creek pig roaster that has two racks.  I will be smoking a 23 lb turkey that I have estimated to be smoking for 11 hours.  If I spatchcock the turkey (cut the backbone out and lay flat) I should be able to cut down the smoking time a little.  My idea is have two breakfast fatties above the turkey and let the fat drippings fall onto the turkey.  Do you see any problems with this idea.

I don't see a problem doing it that way. I wouldn't let poultry drip on anything below, but the fatties should be fine up there.
