Default Turkey what to do?

I ended up with a free turkey I am not sure what to do with. I plan on cooking it on the egg. Any suggestions on what to stuff it with? do I need to brine it? Inject it?

Just seeing if you fellas have any good ideas you can throw my way.

I will be doing thanksgiving bird on our BGE. I'm doing a butt at the same time. The flavors marry very well. Last time I coated the bird with olive oil and poultry seasoning. Stuffed with green apples and onions.

I've also done turkey "drunk" style just like a chicken, using a 40oz can of beer. That's amazing as well.

Damn I'm hungry.

Brine it to keep the meat moist.

I've brined them and they turn out nice and moist. And I've cooked them without brining and they're nice and moist. If you have the time, then brine. If not, you're not going to have a dry bird on the Egg, unless you get your heat too high and/or leave it on there too long.

Last year, I just did a rub and some stuffing. No brine. Came out awesome. Probably not going to mess with brining again this year.

Brine isn't necessary on the BGE. Inject the night before and cool at 300-325' till you reach temp. No need to cook low and slow on a turkey cause it doesn't have fat to render. Put bird on the counter for 30 min with a gallon bag of ice in the breast, this will help slow down the cook time of the breast and allow the dark meat to finish at the same time.

I should have time to brine so I may give it a try just for the hell of it.

Same as a drunk chicken except using a 40 oz beer. And carefully balancing the "tripod" using the legs and the can. I have a picture somewhere if I can find it.
