Certainly looks good. How did it taste?

Was very good. Had a ton of flavor and was super moist. Pulled it at 158 on the breast and 170 on the thigh.

Gives a whole new meaning to turkey bacon


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

Bacon was an afterthought. Whilst telling everyone the plan I got two more recommendations. Stuffing herb butter between the skin and breast and doing a bacon lattice. So I already had $30 bucks in the Turkey what's another $6 for butter and bacon. Let everyone be part of the experience.

The foil leads me to think you wrapped it....at what temp?

Cooked it directly on the middle rack. Wrapped it in foil when it was finished an white meat was reading 158 and dark 172. Let it sit and temp rose a little and then when it started falling I began carving.

Thanks...I don’t wrap mine either but mine come out almost black. Incredible taste but they are definitely not pretty enough to put on the table before carving. Yours came out much more ‘brown’ which is why I wondered.
