On my quest to conquer all things bbq thanksgiving was the perfect opportunity to try smoking a turkey. I used an apple juice based brine for this bird and it turned out awesome. The whole process with all the pictures is available here: Brining process: http://notomatoesbbq.blogspot.com/2010/11/turkey-time.html Finished Bird: http://notomatoesbbq.blogspot.com/2010/11/finished-turkey.html But here is the final product, I wish I had more pictures of the finished bird but it was pretty much destroyed by my family once it was carved up. It started out as oh let me try a piece, Hey me too! then another and another.... etc... I was left with one single leg for leftover which I basically had to smuggle out of the house. The Brine... 24 hours later time for a rinse rinsed and rubbed, just needs some smoke now. here we go, cooked it at 350* and it took about 2.5 hours to get to 165* internal in the breast. It came out way juicier than I expected. When I first saw the busted skin on the breast I thought I really messed up but thankfully I was wrong! Thanks for looking!!! oh and on a side note the skin was awesome!!!!
