    Put a 20 lb bird in at 1:00. Kept the smoker temp at approx. 325-350 the whole time. Hit the 140 mark at just under 3.5 hrs. It finished up at about 5.5 hrs. I did this bird naked, no rub, brine or anything. Came out tasty, juicy, and the wife loved it. I smoked it with hickory the entire time, the skin was crispy and delicious. I also used chef Jimmy's recipe for some awesome turkey gravy. Enjoy the q-view.

    Nice looking bird.I like the KISS method when smoking most of the time, let the meat stand on its own.

    Great looking bird! Hey if you are still making those brownie points with the bride..... I say cook another for the 4th, keep those brownie points rolling in~!  You can never have enough brownie points!

    Thanks guys, I don't know what took me so long to finally put a big bird in that thing. I've had many chickens go through it and they always come out great.
