How to BBQ a Turkey (3 HOURS) 


We are going to show you the best way to make a turkey in 3 hours. We Smoked a Spatchcocked Turkey Christmas Dinner and it was the best way to bbq a turkey. (WE LOVED IT) If you are looking for a Simple Recipe for your Holiday Meal. I would suggest you try this Simple Turkey recipe (Easy). We made it on the K4L Drum Cooker and everyone loved it. The trick is to find that recipe that is full of flavor, simple and easy. This Smoked Spatchcocked Turkey recipe hit all those marks and it was amazing.
