I am the new owner of a weber genesis and would like to do a spatchcock turkey on it for Christmas day. I have seen articles on cooking it on the kettle but I would like to make sure I am doing it correct on the gas grill (why doesn't weber have an article for this?). We don't want to mess up christmas turkey with the inlaws coming over. My grill has 3 burners running front to back.
1. Should I use just the two outside burners or all 3 on a lower setting?
2. Do I need a drip pan underneath?
3. I was thinking I would run a smoke box just for the initial cooking for just a hint of smoke...does anyone see this as a bad idea?
I plan on wet brining the turkey prior to cooking.
Thank you in advance
