    getting warmed up doing a small 12 lb  turkey

    ready for injection the night before


    I found some Island Jerk marinade


    and mixed with an orange shandy


    injected and then poured remainder of mixture in large ziplock,  placed in a pot in case of a leak and into the fridge


    the next day, i cut out the backbone and now its in half so cooking should be a bit quicker and more even

    Into the GOSM at about 225  


    After the first two hours of a good strong pecan wood smoke I added a mayonnaise coating.  The oil in it will help crisp up the skin and form a base to hold the spice coating in place 


    spices added on


    Badia seasoning is what I like on chicken and Turkey


    Now back into the GOSM for another 4-6  hours, maybe will

    added a new batch of pecan wood chunks

    Now we wait and maybe crack a cold one!

    I've been doing jerk chickens...omg they're good.  Can't wait to see the finished product.   One of these days i might try the injection, just doing the dry rub now. Rick look up Island Spice, i've fallen in love with their seasonings.  It's a Jamaican company but they have a distributor in Florida.

    Gary

    A shandy is "beer mixed with something"  Usually a carbonated or lemonade type drink,  this one is a mix of beer and orange juice, quite refreshing.   funny footnote,    Im in fla where we grow oranges and this comes from wisconsin.
