    Doing a 12 lb turkey. Brined it in the slaughterhouse poultry brine I saw on here for about 30 hrs, and been letting air dry over night. Just wanted to ask the massive amount of knowledge and experience on here...should I still do a rub or just smoke like it is? I know a lot is personal preference, but wondering what some veteran smokers would do.
  2. I always brine, rub and spritz my turkeys. Two on right now. Happy smoking.
  3. I take my bird out of brine, rinse it off and dry well by patting down and sit in front of fan for half hour. I then rub the bird down with EVOO, then hit with a little rub and then on the pit.
