    I chose both smoked and baked. I am cooking ours on my big green egg using a little bit of pecan chips and an apple wood chunk or 2 to give it a hint if smoke. But since it is a turkey and not a fatty pork butt or something like that you can't do it low and slow. Cooking it at 325 and with a 20+lb bird I will be up at 2am getting ready. So roasting/smoking combo.

    I butterfly the bird by removing it's back bone, flatten it out and apply rub up under the skin and then grill it rib cage down.

    We don't cook anything still on the bone in my house so I voted for other. We just pick up a pack of boneless turkey servings and call it good.

    I am keeping it in after all, checked the spacing a bit ago. After this one I do want to try a spatchcocked bird though.

    Not frozen and was never frozen, just wrapped up still.

    I voted Baked... like Grandma used to do it... and Fried, as I have in the past.

    I hope to build a smoker in the Backyard of our new house to work um that way sometime.

    You've heard correctly.

    There's no need to get all " it'll burn your house down either" Yes, sure it's happened. But, If you're careful to not over fill the Pot with oil and lower slowly... It comes out in 45 mins. Moist delectable...

    I wrote out how to do it in another " How you cook a Turkey" thread around here..

    I like to baste mine with my very own home made special sauce marinade, and then let it soak in it's own juices for a couple of hours before I carve it up.

    No religious reasons. I get disgusted when I even think about eating meat off the bone. Long story, has to do with growing up.

    As you all know, I'm cooking our turkey this year for the first time.
    Its going to be deep fried in peanut oil.

    Right now its in a bucket of brine made with garlic, onions, mandarins, herbs, salt and chicken broth.
    Its all Shits and Giggles until somebody Giggles and Shits

    Nice !

    Don't worry when you pull it out and you think it's ruined, .. Let em rephrase that... dont think:
    " WHat the Fuk did I do to this Turkey!?!? ..MTBR F'ers Made me ruin it." ..

    . It's just a very thin burnt orange to a crisp outside. the inside will be perfect.

    Wish I was home, if I was it would have been smoked. All I had today was a chicken sandwich at Lotteria.

    After my first couple goes at baking a bird I found out that baking the bird in an oven bag is the only way to go.
    Moist perfection!
