    Pellet Grill Turkey???

    I want to try making a turkey on my pellet grill (GMC Daniel Boone)! has anyone ever done it? Anything you do different from a "normal" oven? How is the taste in comparison?

    For me, this is a bit of a risky endeavor as the inlaws and other guests are coming, which are turkey fanatics!

    does it have a rotisserie? I've bbq'd 5 or 6 turkeys but on a rotisserie. they have all turned out well. I'm not familiar with pellet grills but there is probably a you-tube on it.

    I've done several on my Traeger. Delicious. Smoked turkey is the best.
    Turkey brine:http://allrecipes.com/recipe/85839/o...-turkey-brine/

    • 2 gallons water
    • 1 1/2 cups canning salt
    • 3 tablespoons minced garlic


    • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar


    brined for 24 hours, rinse, pat dry.

    inject with herb butter (sage and rosemary)

    slather with butter, and sprinkle a bit of dry rub to give the skin salt

    into the smoker at 325. start checking at 1:45, last one was over done at 2:30

    tent for 30 minutes to allow juices to redistribute.

    I just put my brined turkey into my bradley smoker a few minutes ago. I have done them in there before and they were good but they take a long time with temps maxing out at about 300 f.

    Dont see why you wouldnt be able to do a turkey on a pellet grill if you can get indirect heat. Use a probe thermometer and watch internal temps.

    More of a taste concern, and the temp fall-off is different than in a "regular" oven (which might actually be an advantage?). But from the above responses this is a go. Looking forward to this experiment....
