Well I wanted to try curing and smoking a full turkey. I got the idea from Rytek Kutas book. I had a turkey in the freezer for over a year so what better piece to try it out on? I thawed it out in the refrigerator for a week and then made a brine of TQ, white sugar, brown sugar, onion powder and garlic powder. In the turkey went for 6 days. I pulled the turkey let it dry for a day and pulled it out this morning to smoke. Here's the patient pulled from the brine, washed and skin pulled from the breast. I melted a stick of butter and mixed in pepper, thyme, Sage, Basil, and onion powder. Put the bowl in the freezer for a few minutes to make a paste. The paste was then put under the skin as deep as I could go. Here she is rubbed with canola oil and dusted with seasonal so it wasn't nekkid. Of course I couldn't leave her alone, so I prepared a bird of prey (chicken) with salt and pepper for a snack. And finally on the smoker for the duration. I should get a better picture of the smoker when the sun passes over the house. I found out that my snp likes to cruise at 300 degrees. First time smoking at that temp. Thank you for looking and more to come.
