  1. Well I have been waiting for a decent day to smoke this turkey i got from the store about 4 days ago, and finally today was nice, got my excercise done early, got off of work and still felt like tackling this turkey.  Made a nice little rub out of garlic, natures seasoning, some penzy's spice mix, and chives little dash of evoo and apple juice, and spread it on under the skin.  i also injected the breasts with a similar concoction and  minus the chives and evoo.  I had a hard time getting the last 15 degrees so i had to bring it in and put it in the oven :(  but it ended up very good the skin was nice and crispy and the inside was as moist as can be.  I think the size played a huge factor in not brining it or possibly the injections, but it was awesome none the less.  the turkey had no wings or thighs and was only breasts and and body meat on it.  also thought i should include the QView for all to atleast try to enjoy the flavor!!!
