Our 17lb bird at 129F, pulled off at 163F. Failed to get the plated pic due to the last minute rush with gravy and caving. Came out decent. Used the amazing rib Simon and Garfunkel wet rub. Good stuff.

Brined one turkey and spun it on my Performer with some apple and peach wood. Then deep fried the other to have the family do the taste test. The consensus was the rotisserie bird had better flavor. Both birds had crispy skin, and the deep fried one was excellent too!(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181123/9698910a848012173b6b7e1f6d30f2b1.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181123/5c9a000e3ed8366705844a6aacf3cb3c.jpg)

Injected with butter infused with parsley, rosemary, sage and thyme. Then rubbed with the same. Stuffed with onions, celery, and apples.

Yes I know it's not a Weber, and even worse, it's a gasser but I'm at my parents house! The turkey turned out great but zero smoke flavor despite the wood chips.

How did it go?  They look good!
When your cooking for a long period of time like that youíll have to replenish your coal base every hour by either adding more unlit coals or more lit coals. I prefer lit. If youíre trying to bump up the heat you just need to add a few more coals during that time.
Also, and this might just be my opinion, but lifting the lid too often letís a lot of the heat escape and makes it hard to recover or stay consistent with a desired temp.
Try to get the grill to settle in to your desired temp, then leave it alone only opening every hour to add coals, baste or whatever and get that lid back down quickly.

I used a relatively unknown brand called Barbeque Wood Flavors...bought it at publix.  Good stuff and inexpensive.

Temps outside were upper 50's....crossed over 60 for a brief while.

I use the camera on my iPhone 8 Plus.  Using a tripod along with portrait mode which uses the dual camera lenses really gets some good pics.  The tripod really helps get clearer pictures.  Itís hard to not have a slight shake  when taking pictures otherwise.

Here is the tripod I have.  Nothing too fancy but I like that it folds down small and has a Bluetooth remote that clips to a leg for triggering the camera to take a picture.
