My Spatchcocked Turkey.

Recommended Posts

Here's my yahdbyrd. Dry brined for in the fridge for two days. Then oiled it up put some salt & pepper garlic & onion powder and some of Paul Prudhomme's poultry magic. Cooked it over a full load of lump and 4 pieces of  cherry wood  with the heat deflectors in place. Filled an aluminum pan with carrots, onions, celery, water, and some chicken stock. Slapped the Byrd on at 350° and let it roll till the breast read 160°. Best Byrd yet!

Is your rack resting directly on the disposable pan? I have considered doing that, but I was worried about the pan collapsing.

Speaking for myself and a Kamado Joe setup, there's enough room for the pan to rest on the deflectors (lowest position) and for the grate to sit on the rack like it normally would. I think @Big Biscuitdid the same.

My Pit Boss doesn't have a sweet rack system, dammit! Thanks for the response! :)

Like LargeRedJoe stated it the pan fits under the grate. 

Thanks all for the the kind words. B)

A quick way to take away your fear of the pan colapsing is to support the grill grate with something. I have use everything from fire bricks cut in half, to 1nch copper tubing cut to the proper length to fit under the grill grate. Pretty easy fix. Some times I just set a fire brick that I have  wrapped in foil in the middle of my drip pan with the grill grate resting on top of it. Happy Cooking.
