I cook it breast side down, learned this secret from a chef years ago. The dark meat contains the fat, so when its cooked breast side down all the juices go into the white meat keeping it moist. No basting at all, works every time!

Brined two 12 lb birds, then smoke at 170 in the green mountain grill for about 4 hours, and then finish at 375 till breast meat is 160. Oh and I went ahead and our a lb of bacon over one of them. Can't hurt

I have the same unit by char-Broil. In the past I used the traditional oil fryer but it got too messy and what to do with the oil after cooking the bird. This cooker is amazing and gets the job done without all the fuss. I placed an 11 pound bird in at 9am and it was done by 11am.

This year, due to a smaller turnout, mom did one turkey her traditional way, and I cooked a legless, wingless turkey on the grill. Usually I will fry one in peanut oil, but will do it for Family Day next month.

I've done it all. Oil, No Oil, Oven, Slow Roasted. Best way: 'Re-gift' all your stuff to your kids and let them do it. You may have to supervise a couple of times, but it's worth it.

Sounds like divorce might be working for you. I'm watching football right now - Detroit vs. Green Bay after having a nice meal the DW made

Waiting for Raiders to whip the Cowgirls later

Red Green is carried by our PBS from time to time - amazing what the guy does with duck tape.

I'm from upstate NY - never heard of Dexter
