Got my bird in the egg as well. Using Applewood for the smoke, and slide some bacon up under the skin of the Breasts, about 4 slices per side.

I think 5 and half hours for a 12 bird may be too long ? Mine's been on since 1300 at about 225-250, and I am already at 150 internal temp, starting to slow it down a tad to hit the 1630 dinner time !

oh, i got a 19 pound bird soaking up some smokey goodness !!

I almost ruined mine. Put the bird on the egg at 400 degrees (10 min per lb), trying something new this year. Checked it at 1 hr and the skin was burned off (?what the ?????). Turns out my temp gauge had failed (3 years old, living in the rain) and I was actually cooking at 650 degrees. Backed the temp way down, and finished it. It looked like hell, but still was very jucy and everybody loved it, those latecommers that did not see it pre carved said it was as good as any they had ever had.

over shot my dinner time, backed it down too much, bird finally finished at 1700, last half hour I did have to bring it back up to 350. Plus, I think my temp probe was not deep enough. I repositioned, and found my temp to be about 10-15 degrees cooler in the actual center, than what I thought.

Sky, I replaced my original BGE analog / dial style thermometer, with a digital one. You get faster reads on the temp, and can make adjustment to the fire sooner, and I have found that I can general zero in on my desired temp with less back and forth, you can see the fire "speeding up, or slowing down" quicker. Oh, gonna have to head down to see you soon for some more coal !

Turkey turned out excellent ! Nice and moist ! Lovin my BGE !
