Perfect Roast Turkey On The Kamado Joe

One thing you might want to consider before starting with this recipe is whether you want to brine it or not. Brining will result in a  juicier bird- it is not necessary, but definitely worth it if you have a day in advance to prepare. Here’s a recipe that includes brining.

The key to the perfect roast turkey is getting the salt under the skin. Pat the bird dry, then carefully get your fingers under the skin to loosen it. Proceed to season with kosher salt both under the skin and everywhere on the bird. Also season the outside with your favorite poultry seasoning, and drizzle some Canola oil on top. Finally, stuff the herbs inside the cavity.

Set up your grill/smoker to cook at 175º-180ºF using a heat deflector. Place a roasting pan under the grates, with 8 cups of water and chopped onion, celery, carrots, garlic, fresh herbs and the turkey’s neck. Then place the turkey on the grate and start cooking!

The target internal temperature is 165ºF in the breast and 175ºF in the thigh. When done, rest the bird for 20 minutes before carving.
