    Hi, my name is Sara. I have just recently bought a fairly cheap smoker. I have smoked a Pork Butt once & some Ribs once. They both had great flavor, but I still have a lot to learn. I am getting ready to smoke a Turkey (which I have not done before) and I would like to smoke it during the evening & heat it up the next day. I was wondering how I can reheat it without drying out the meat. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Hi Sara. Welcome to SMF. Nice to have you. I have always timed the bird for the table, so avoided this issue. When you have to face it though, I agree it would be nice to have a method in mind. From the experience of others, I know that some foil with gravy or dressing and reheat in the oven. I know one person who has a big electric Turkey Roaster. They return their bird to the Roaster, to have it reheated in time for dinner. The lid seems to hold in the mositure. Others use zip locks in boiling water. I know you will be receiving more and probably better help soon. In the interim, you might try the 'Search' button and enter 'reheat'. There is quite a bit of good information scattered around the site.

    Good Luck,

    Welcome to SMF !!!
    I have never reheated the whole bird, but I think Pescadero roaster idea is a great one; maybe even save some of your grease drippings from smoking it for the roaster also.

    Glad to have you with us.

    Welcome Sara -

    First brine the bird! Inject some of the brine into the bird and fridgerate over night.

    You can smoke a turkey up to about 15 lbs in about 3.5 to 4 hours at 350 degrees with nice crispy skin.

    To reheat I would first wrap the bird up tight while hot in plastic wrap! That'll hold all the juice in. Put a bowl or something under it to catch what gets away. Next day leave the plastic on turn the oven on to 200 degrees and get it hot. When it hot enough to eat. Unwrap it crank the oven up to 400 and throw it back in to crispy up the skin or if you have an electric oven turn it on broil an watch the skin.
