I was thinking of grilling a Turkey for Thanksgiving. Can anyone share their experiences?

I have for the past few years. You will need to cook it in-directly... I use a 22' weber grill. Place a drip pan under the turkey and real lump charcoal. I also use a programmable meat thermometer so I do not over cook... It will take a few hours... use hickory wood chucks if you like it smoked!
So good!

We did it last year and plan to do it again (we do two small turkeys: one outside on the rotisserie, and one in the oven.)
We have a gas grill rotisserie. Seems like it took a couple hours.
The rotisserie turkey gets stuffed with a couple onions, apples, sage, rosemary, then lathered up with butter and olive oil. We truss it up, and it might not look like something out of a magazine because it really has to be tied up. But man does it taste good. We rotisserie chickens quite often, but turkey only once a year, and it can't weigh more than 13 lbs.
