I am treating this like one would cook a drunk chicken, save no beer can, as that is too small. A coffee can in this case, stuffed with onion and lemons and filled with water. The carcass has 1 cup poultry spices cooked in butter, rubbed under the skin after cooling. The skin has poultry spices mixed into oil, and rubbed sensually into the skin. It is sensual turkey at a certain point I am sure. Sooo much rubbing. And aromatics, and oils, and fingers..oh my. Just put your arms behind your head....I do appreciate large firm breasts. LOL.

A hot fire brings tbs early. I get there with a lot of hot charcoal from a chimney, then add hickory wood, then another chimney of hot coals on top of that. The bird is not wrapped like my ribs or other fatty cuts, and it is lean so high and hot is better. But I am not teaching the better cooks on this forum

I wish I lived next to you. I will be using this furnace every day. I love spare ribs much more than turkey. Have you tried pigeons? They have a delicate flavour. Just love food. Love beef as well with lots of marbles! Yummmmmm!

Son and I were amazed at how big our American cousins were. We were watching Suburbans secrets and the murdered lady's godfather was HUGE!

I appreciate your sentiments. However, many of our kinsmen across the Atlantic failed to appreciate Benjiman Franklin and his thoughts on smoked turkey, as he nearly made it our national bird. But given Franklins proclivity for the appreciation of large firms breasts when he was on your side of the Atlantic I am sure I understand his sentiment toward smoked turkey as different from yours.

For those unaware, Franklins sexual exploits were carried back across the water even as he pressed for support of the colonies.

I have never seen it. Was he a fatty or just a tall Hun?

Added more wood, which is not bad if more than 50% of the heat is coming from coals.

Beer on the breasts AND down the mouths! Crumbs! Hope I don't sound gross!

Its ok! As I still understand it, over here most young people would call that "Spring Break" and pay to attend:oops:... We also have Mardi Gras, and a few other gatherings where people misbehave in groups but no turkey is served.

DirtM: Do you cook a lot? How long does it take you two lovebirds to finish a bird like that? Turkeys are huge birds with lot of meat! I have never seen such a smoker like that in this country!

We eat what we want and on Tuesday I will share with my employees for lunches. Plus we have a fat dog named Fossy. I gave 3 of those half slabs of ribs on Friday. They did not want to share with the other store!

Your dog is lucky!

I bet you don't eat dogs When I was very young, we had k-9 for feast! It's not a joke. It's just a way of life amongst villagers .. I know a lot of people condemn it, just as a lot of herbivores condemn carnivores!

As I am old now, I eat more veg and fruits - but I just love meat! Meat with its own flavour like lamb and beef. Both are too expensive here!
