I'm going to do the turkey on the grill this year for Thanksgiving. I tried my first one of these back in January, using this weber recipe and it turned out well. I may try this again, but I like to mix it up a bit so am looking for other good recipes. Anyone have a favorite?

I've considered this one as well as a couple of others on the weber page.

I'll be doing this on a gas weber grill using indirect heat.

Looks good! I may have to try that this year. I love cooking rotisserie chicken on my weber summit and have always wanted to try a turkey!

Yummy! Rotisserie is the best cooking method for meat, my favorite. That and braising but that method would not apply with a whole turkey.

The last few years I have smoked my turkey. It is the best way too eat turkey imo. This year I think I'll try a brine of some sorts.

How do you achieve good results with the skin without it being flabby and gross with the smoking method?

I discard the skin but those who eat it just turn the temps up the last hour of the cook.

What temp do you set your smoker for a chicken or turkey?
