Then we got the grill.
I'm not sure who suggested it first, but Ed definitely was up for a grilled and smoked turkey. He went and visited our GMG dealer to see what he suggested, and Ed arrived home with a big container of greek rub and directions to cook at 275. However, the message I got is that it'll take a while, so I started that bird at 9:30am.
Yeah, I should have called Ron and found out how big a bird he tends to do. It was done in just under three hours. It was sooooo pretty.
However, Jane was planning on us arriving at 5pm, so we waited on carving.
Our patience was rewarded, as it was tasty and tender. It still had great turkey flavor, a hint of smoke and it was moist and flavorful from that rub.
Now I'm wondering if we should do one for Christmas, too.
And lamenting the fact that I didn't get an 18 pound bird...
