I've already informed my family we are going to have a nontraditional Thanksgiving. I fully intend to smoke the turkey on my Kamado.
Anyone have any experience or recipes on the matter?

I smoked a turkey a few years ago. Turned out pretty dam good.
I had a 5 gallon food grade bucket, filled it just enough to cover the turkey.
Recipe... just kinda faked it and started grabbing stuff from the spice cabinet.
Not sure what else. Brined it for 2 days in the Kegerator. I think I used Apple wood in the smoker.
I've always wanted to try the deep fried turkey.
Any of you guys attempted this? I've seen videos where people over fill the frier and oil spills over and catches fire.
If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.
Overall, if you use just a little caution it's safe and the results are delicious!!! No recipe, just cook it according to directions.
Cogito, ergo armatum sum
Be careful, it is easy to dry out a turkey deepfrying it. Watch the temp.
Si vis pacem para bellum
I've never done it myself, but I know it's easy to overcook a fried bird. A friend's dad did it one year and we got a terribly dry, greasy turkey.
I smoked a brined chicken with a little seasoning under the skin a month or so ago and it was amazing... can you think of any reason not to use the exact same procedure for a turkey?
