    Smoked up a couple 12 lb Turkeys for dinner tonight ..followed Jeffs technique and they came out superb. About 8 hrs in the GOSM at 225.

    I used apple and cherry wood. The smoke flavour ain't as strong as I hoped and will use mesquite or hickory next time. Though for the ladies around the supper table they were just right. Great success eh.

    Now what to smoke for halloween...hmmm....[​IMG]

    HeHe...you guys are hilarious..guess i gotta figure out how to rotate the pics of my next smoke.

    Big Fokker...I used Jeffs recipe for smoking turkey it includes the brine mixture also.
    Its in the column of links on the left side. The only thing I would change is, like I've seen suggested here by wiley veterans of the TBS, is a higher temp for a shorter time, and use mesquite instead of apple cherry mix.

    Yeah poutry is better smoked at higher temps. I just can't stand rubbery skins! Go for 300ºF to 350ºF if you can get your smoker to stay that high. 375ºF is even better if you can manage it.
