The turkey was edible, and there was a certain novelty, but all in all, it was not a triumph.
- It was rather a lot of work, including some butchery that was more than my kitchen shears and small hands could take on easily.
- The smoke flavor was mild in the dark meat, and completely absent from the breast meat.
- There were next to no drippings in the water pan I set up for that purpose, so I had to use the 'gravy bag' that comes with the turkey*. Meh.
*It turns out that my sons love that over-processed stuff the gravy bag makes. They claim it tastes like a pot pie.
