Hard to beat a fried turkey. Do you inject a marinade?

Putting it in a clay oven baker this year. See what happens. Everything else I cook in it is delish.. so I'm giving it a try.

Smoked a 15 pounder on Sunday for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner. Used a little applewood in my fire and some rosemary in the water pan. All in all, it came out great - lots of good reviews by others too.

Yeah, a couple nights before I inject it and let it sit before cooking it up. Starts out with butter, white wine, garlic, pepper, salt, and what ever else looks good in the spice cabinet. Comes out killer but it took me a few birds to figure it out:D

Usually would rotisserie the turkey (beats the pants of fried), but since there's no fryer or rotisserie equipped grill at the lake, we'll be forced to bake.

Oh well, should still be good.

If we were going to be at home, it would definitely be smokin in the Big Green Egg.

My father-in-law cooked one a couple of years ago after he saw John Madden talking about it. We still laugh about it. Everyone acted like it was the best thing they ever ate so as not to hurt his feelings, but when he wanted to send left overs home everyone was like "oh, that's OK, uh, you enjoy it"). The next year after a couple of beers the truth came out and I swear, I had tears in my eyes I was laughing so hard. We call it Turdstucken.

There is no option better than frying a turkey in my opinion. Inject it and fry it I say. However, I did work on a case not too long ago where I was defending an apartment complex due to some idiots deciding to fry a turkey on their covered wooded porch balcony. Yeah, the whole place burned to the ground and their rather obese neighbors had to jump from their second story apartment window breaking both of their ankles. Moral of the story---don't fry a turkey next to combustible structures, or at least don't fry a turkey next to combustible structures with fat people located in the area.

Mother in law's boyfriend is allergic to fowl. We will be buying a fried one because he get's sick whenever he's around a turkey being cooked!

We do a smo-fry turkey. Smoke it for around 1-1.5 hours and the finish it off in the fryer. They usually turn out great, but one year I check the turkey temp and it was 145, they checked it 5 minutes later and it was 195! The meat texture was like cornbread.
