Got a young turkey from the store the other day, about 8 lbs. I've never done a turkey before so I decided I try a brine, I got the recipe here and for the life of me can not remember whos' it was but rest assured you'll get credit where it is due as soon as I find it again I don't have a bucket so I used a meat lug for the brine and the bird, mixed a double batch to fill it up more. Next time I'll have a bucket but for now I just flip the bird over every couple of hours. When I do one in the oven I like to use this mix so I figured It would be good for a smoked bird too; 3 tbls of melted butter 1/4 tsp onion & garlic powder 1/2 tsp cajun injector seasoning 1 tsp oregano 1/2 tsp thyme 1/2 rosemary Mix it all together in the butter and baste the bird, then on to the grill. I'll check back later with an update!
