    Happy Turkey day in Canada.

    Smoking my first turkey breast today. Brined overnight, rinsed and dried this morning and seasoned with Emeril's Essence rub and a light coating of olive oil. Put it in the big chief with a pan of boiling water.

    Interested to see how high i can get the internal temp in this smoker. Currently at 110 after 2 hours. Aiming for 4-5 hours in the big chief and finishing off on the Weber charcoal grill to bring it to 175 if needed (most likely).

    Smoking with 4 pans of apple wood.

    5 hours in the big chief only got the internal to 140. Cut off the butchers net, basted in pure maple syrup and into the oven at 300 until done.

    Mouth is watering. Crossing my fingers that all is good.

    Nice job Duke!

    I avoided smoking our turkey cause my wife takes pride in preparing a huge turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I would not hear the end of it if I smoked one and it turned out better than hers! LOL

    Cheers.
