Turkey on a wood pellet grill?

debrak_2008May 1, 2013

We have a wood pellet grill and would like to try cooking a turkey on it.

Anyone done this? Any suggestions?

I'm going to google but I always trust the advice here more than other cooking websites.

Are you talking about smoking with wood pellets?

Which grill do you have?

I'll have to go out and look at the name of the grill. I'm not sure how or if a smoker is different than this grill.

We have been using it as a regular gas grill. It has a low med and high setting.

You can absolutely cook a turkey on a wood pellet grill. The most important thing is temperature regulation (both on the grill/smoker and the ability to measure the interior temp of the turkey - 165 in the thick part of the breast means it is safe). Most pellet grills impart a nice wood fired flavor (especially at lower temps) and the turkeys we've cooked over ours have been amazing.

Here's a google link to a bunch of recipes. Good luck!

I did a turkey on a pellet grill. Turned out really good. What did you want to know?

Thanks for the responses. I'm not sure what I need to know, lol! Any tips are appreciated. I don't want to "waste" a turkey by cooking it wrong.

I think I'll plan on doing it this weekend if the weather is good.
