well that pork loin I marinated in the cuban flavored sauce turned out very good and moist when I took it off the smoker...  a very nice smoke ring around the outside of it..

I've got a couple turkey breasts in freezer from last fall.  Need to get them out and do something.   Maybe smoke half of one and do the other half "turkey to go" style.  Now all I need is some decent weather.   

Pot roast tonight.

Leech, do you marinate it in anything first? Just wondering if it dries out a bit on smoker, more than chicky, since it tends to be a drier meat. Never have done a turkey before....

I've never done turkey before neither but that looks fun.  I wondered about if you marinate it too.  How long at what heat?

I have done several turkeys on the smokers over the years,  generally I always injected them and brined them or marinate if you want something different..  I sure enjoy how the meat stays so nice and juicy!!!  and on the weber charcoal grill I do it in-direct cooking method  again it's very good!!!!  and the left overs are even better!!!  hope this helps ya!!!

Whole turkey is the thing that made me want to buy a weber.  One of the "young guys" at work invited a bunch of us over to his dad's place by St Charles to try to reduce the bullhead population in his dad's ponds.   So we fished for bullheads and he made a couple turkeys on the weber.   Some of the best food I ever ate.   

And he is a heck of a trout fisherman as well...

I've grilled a pile of whole turkeys over charcoal. Indirect heat. I make up my own concotion for a marinade and inject it in the bird the day before I grill it.

Great now I wanna grill a turkey. :Turkey: :Turkey:

Nua, I really like just adding a dry rub and smoking, seems to work out pretty well. I fill the water can with chicken broth to add some moisture after the first hour of smoking to help keep it from drying out.  Crazy good last night.  :happy1:

I set it at 250F, it was about 4hrs on the smoker to hit temp.
