The Big Green Egg Recipe of the Month.


For November, Elite Appliance’s (Our Sister Store) The Big Green Egg Recipe of the Month is The Perfect Turkey.


The Perfect Turkey



One turkey, cleaned thoroughly

The Small EGG® will hold a 12-pound turkey

The Medium EGG will hold an 18-pound turkey

The Large EGG will hold a 20-pound turkey

The XL EGG will hold two 20-pound turkeys

1 whole onion, cut in half

1 stalk celery

2 cups chicken broth, wine or water

Your favorite commercial or homemade dry BBQ rub or salt and pepper to taste


– Set the EGG® up for indirect cooking with a plate setter at 350°F. A small handful of pecan chips can be added for a mild smoke flavor and to bestow a burnished brown appearance to the turkey.

– If you are using a vertical turkey roaster, load the bird onto the roaster, and place into a drip pan. Add the onion and the celery to the drip pan, then fill the drip pan with the chicken broth, wine or water. Use your favorite rub or salt and pepper for the outside of the bird.

– If you are using a roasting pan you can lay the bird horizontally on a trivet or V-Rack to slightly elevate the turkey off the bottom of the roasting pan and follow the same directions.

– Cook the turkey for 12 to 15 minutes per pound until the temperature in the breast meat is 160°F and the temperature in the thighs is above 170°F. Reserve the pan drippings to make gravy.
