Default 20 lb turkey in my NBSS, am I crazy?


20 lb turkey in my NBSS, am I crazy?

It doesn't fit (due to height) at the main grate level. But, I have a
few extra grates running long ways a bit closer to the bottom of the
main chamber.

If it fits there... I know I am in for a long cook... anything else I
need to be aware of?


Que for all so long as it's not parboiled ribs.

Don't let the pit temp go too low, lest the beast take
forever to cook.

I think my record for turkey in a smoker was 22 lbs. Another time I
spatchcocked a 20+ pounder and did it in a large open pit. Believe
it or not the spatchecocked one cam out better (and easier).
