Turkey Cook Time Calculator

Welcome to the Heat Beads® Turkey Cook Time Calculator

Enter your meal time and the weight of your bird and the calculator will tell you when to fire up the BBQ!

*Before you click CALCULATE, remember to add 20-30 minutes to your recommended cooking time if you have stuffing in your turkey. We also recommend you read the Turkey Cook Time Calculator Terms of Use below.

Please note: this calculator provides a guide only.

Briquette sizes may vary slightly from bag to bag, due to the manufacturing process. We recommend a weight of approx. 3kg for a medium heat.

This calculator is based around a Weber Kettle, not a grill BBQ and we recommend splitting the briquettes evenly between the two baskets/rails. Ash over time for Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes can vary from 30-40 minutes, depending on weather conditions impacting the accuracy of times provided by the calculator. Please ensure the bird reaches an internal temp of 76-77ºC (170ºF) to guard against undercooking.
