    Stuffed Turduckin

    My niece was given a bacon wrapped turduckin stuffed with sausage dressing. She wants me to smoke it for her. I know Meathead warns about not stuffing because the meat will be dried out by the time the IT of the dressing is hit. Would you recommend cooking this low and slow at 225 or a higher temp similar to using a conventional oven? Should I try to remove the stuffing before smoking and just have her bake it in the oven?

    Total weight is 7lbs.

      Have not seen one at our local Costco. I will keep an eye out.
      Be sure to let us know how it turns out.
      Pictures are always appreciated.

    bbqLuv Thanks again for the links on cooking. Here are some pics of the turducken cook. It turned out to not be a true turducken, but rather a turducken roast. No wings, breast or legs.

    Comments: Cooked to internal temp of 165. Got a good smoke ring from a couple of chunks of cherry. Took 4.5 hrs at 225 as package indicated it would.

    Bacon wrap. Nicely wrapped. Very thin. Added moisture but no flavor.

    Turkey. Was pressed thigh meat. No breast meat. Dry and bland.

    Duck. Lack of flavor and dry.

    Chicken. Ok but nothing special.

    Italian sausage dressing. Could taste a little heat, but basically it was a paste injection.

    Verdict. Wish I had a lot of gravy. Do not buy one of these roasts. Stay with a true turducken, or better yet, stay with just a turkey.

    Thankfully, it was a gift. Would have really felt bad if I had paid for it.

      This makes more sense to my food safety brain anyway, but my eyeballs agree gravy would be necessary

      Sorry it turned out that way. And yes, a true turducken is awesome, especially when stuffed with a rice dressing or sausage. And they’re great on the smoker.

      We tried one of these but the turkey only variety and bread stuffing.
      Nine gallons of gravy wouldn't have helped that thing.
      And I did feel bad....even though I got it on sale, I paid for it.

    Sure looked good on the outside. Not so much on the inside. 😳


      @jlazar I thought this is what you were going to cook. Pictures look good.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
