Default Roasted, Fried, smoked, rotisserie

How are you gentlemen cooking your turkeys this year? I've got my bayou classic ready to go so I'm going to fry up a 12 lber in some peanut oil. Very torn on if I should roast the second one or do it rotisserie style with a citrus rub, or smoke one in my master built smoker.

In addition to the turkey, I've got 5 gallons of home made blueberry wine and 5 gallons of home made hard cider. Should be a good thanksgiving provided I don't burn anything down

I like to rotisserie smaller turkeys. I do it for the heck of it. It's fun to be outside peeking in on the bird once in a while. I add a little smoke, mostly to make the back yard smell good.
And the bird always tastes great. Not very good if you plan on stuffing. I only use salt and pepper rub and don't inject anything into the bird, but citrus or any other concoction is even better.
You do have to carefully truss up the legs, and cut away extra fat and skin, but rotisserie is a a great way to go. You'll likely sip some of that beverage while the bird spins.

I just like the flavor of an oven roasted Turkey. I don't want smoke or rubs. Just salt and a little poultry seasoning. I do like smoked Turkey and might do a breast on the BGE, but I like that traditional taste and love the sandwiches after. I start the bird at 500 degrees in the oven for 30 minutes, then put foil on top and reduce to 350 for the remainder. Comes out perfect. Alton Brown recipe.

Fried Baby!!! Been doing it for years sand it is always delicious. Prior to throwing the turkey in, I make homemade sweet potato and Yukon Gold chips.

I do miss the drippings though for making good gravy. I may do a smoked turkey breast this weekend, just for fun.

Cook it in the oven until done, a little butter under the skin and some basting as it cooks

smoke it and then flash fry it while the oil is still hot from frying the other one

to me masterbilt electric smokers don't do chicken/turkey well b/c the skin won't crisp up enough

Brined & Grilled.

Basic brine with apple juice, salt, brown sugar, bay leaves, and whole peppercorns.

Stuff the cavity with chopped apples, onions, fresh sage, and cinnamon sticks. Boil the cinnamon sticks for about 5 min in about a cup of water first, and put the sticks in the cavity, dump in liquid. Heavily slather the outside with dukes mayo with a lot of paprika and garlic powder. Grill on indirect heat at about 400.

Pull out out the apple/onion mixture, and put most of it in a grill basket and grill for about 20 minutes while the bird cools down. Put roughly 1 cup worth in a blender along with a can of chunky cranberry sauce, and blend until smooth. Stick that in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Makes a very savory cranberry gravy, which is excellent over cornbread dressing and sliced turkey alike.

The best thing about this prep method, it works well with the monster birds that the grocery stores tend to give away with bonus card points around thanksgiving and christmas. Definitely better with a 12-14lb bird, but is fine even with a 20lb+ bird. This one was from a couple of years ago, and was a big bird, 21 lbs if I remember correctly. Came out great.
