    Turkey Day in Austin Texas

    Roasting a parted turkey (just under 18#s) on my well modified COS Oklahoma Joe Longhorn with post oak.

          Tomorrow, I am headed early to my local Central Market (upscale part of HEB grocers) to see if they have fresh organic turkeys for sale at super low prices as they did last year. If so I will buy a couple to smoke and freeze.

                    LOL when I first read your post I thought you said smoking a pardoned turkey? I was thinking Don't think that word means what he thinks it means. Then I focused a little (I need to do that more) and realized it was "parted". Wonderful looking bird!! Welcome to the pit!!


                      Welcome! Great folks here but you know that already

                      Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

                      Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                      Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                      3 burner gas grill

                      The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
