    I finally did my first my first turkey on the CharGriller Duo.  I brined it using cranberry/apple juice with some cloves, garlic and orange slices.  Tasted great although next time I will use apple wood instead of hickory was a little to smoky for my taste.  The CharGriller is modified with propane.  It did take some time messing with the firebox to get a good thin blue smoke but all is good now.[​IMG][​IMG]

    As for the propane firebox, I did what others have done.  Just used a turkey fryer burner and I'm using a coffee can on its side for a smoke box.  I tried a cast iron pan and bread pans for the smoke box but both would cause the chunks to catch on fire.  The can works great so far.
