If the turkey is completely thawed, I would use 18.5 minutes per pound as a guide. For a 13 pound turkey, this means about 4 hours. I would also monitor with a meat thermometer in the thickest area of the thigh. When the temperature gets to 185 degrees the turkey should be done. If you are stuffing your turkey, I would add another 5 minutes per pound to account for the stuffing. I like stuffed turkey because the stuffing has a really nice smoked flavor when cooked in the Weber. I would keep the vent on the top half open while cooking. Add new charcoal about every 45-60 minutes. You will love a Weber-cooked turkey.
If the temperature under the hood is hot enough (325°F to 350°F), grilling a 12 to 14 pound turkey should take approximately 4 hours. If your grill does not have a thermometer, an oven thermometer can be used. Cooking time may vary depending on temperature of the fire, wind and outdoor air temperature.

What's your favorite food to eat on your Thanksgiving dinner menu? My favorite food on our Thanksgiving dinner table will be the Pineapple Stuffing baked dish, it's simple to make and delicious, it's not the turkey stuffing or stove top kind of stuffing, it's more like a dessert.
