Amazing but true: using our trusty Spanek vertical roaster, a basic Weber kettle grill, and around 70 charcoal briquettes, we cook our 20-lb. Thanksgiving turkey in less than 3 hours– and it’s the tastiest turkey you’ll ever eat.
Papa Jack Trageser started our tradition in the 80’s And now for you lucky Web-Off judges, it’s Thanksgiving in July!
Papa Jack’s actual recipe notes are shown below, but here are the basics:
- Remove the normal cooking grate so you can stand the turkey the turkey up and still close the lid
- Line kettle and lid with aluminum foil and open all vents
- Amount of briquettes and time is based on weight of the bird
- Don’t open the lid until it’s done. No peeking!
“No peeking! DO NOT open the lid!”Papa Jack Trageser
