Weber Kettle BBQ Turkey.
You will never cook one in the oven again!

Step 1:

1. Start with a clean kettle to insure that all vent holes are open for airflow.

2. Place a ½ size steam table aluminum pan in the center of the grill.  Point the long side of the pan toward the front or single leg of the kettle.

3. Add charcoal to the both sides of the kettle pot.  Stack the briquettes from the edge of the aluminum pan to the side and up to the height of the top grill rack.
 
It looks great.

Thank you.
If you think it looks good, wait until you make one and taste it.
I also made whole chickens the other day exactly the same way, with the exception of the cook time. They took just 45 minutes of cook time.

I found the smokey flavor to be too strong and have gone back to cooking in the kitchen.

Also we always cook turkeys breast side down so the juices have to flow through the normally dry white meat in order to drip out. Seems to make the white meat less dry.

And we never stuff a turkey going into the Weber. It cooks much faster without stuffing. These things cook very quickly.

You are welcome to cook your turkey anyway you like best. My methods has provided wonderful meals for my family and guests, for many years.

Looks delicious -- Gotta try this!

Do you put anything in the steam pan?
PutzMeyer (author)  craftydan3 years ago
No. It's just there to catch the
juice and fat.
