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.
