On the 8th day God created Smoked Beer Butt Turkey! Q-view!

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by smoker matt 54, Mar 10, 2008.

  1. I injected the bird with a Garlic, Herb marinade the night before and used the rest to marinade the turkey over night. (12 lb turkey)


    I also rubbed a little cajun seasoning on before it hit the smoker! It kinda looked like a fat Batman turkey.




    Beautiful 60 degree day


    I cooked the turkey at 300 degrees for about 6 hrs and mopped it with some beer and leftover marinade


    It turned out a little darker than I wanted (Looks more like Batman), but man it tasted amazing!

    Thanksgiving in March!

    Great looking bird!! I plan on doing a turkey after I get some mods done. Right now I couldn't get my ECB up to 300 and keep it there unless I threw it on a bonfire. [​IMG]

    Hey, are you sure "she" (didn't see any male parts) was at 300 degrees for 6 hours?

    My beer can 12 pounders are done in about 3 1/2 hours at 275 to 300:)

    Nice bird, bet there's none left!!!
