Smoking a Turkey

  1. Trying a turkey for the first time. It's about 13.5lbs. I chose to marinate it over night in a wet brine of
    1/2 cup kosher salt
    2 tbs garlic powder
    2 tbs onion powder
    1 tsp black ground pepper
    1/2 cup surgar
    2tsp paprika
    4cups water
    I then vacuum sealed it and let sit for the last 24 hrs. I took it out this morning dried it off and let sit for 2.5 hrs.

    Got smoker up to 300 deg Fahrenheit put some apple wood chips in, now the bird is smoking.

    Will post more pics as the process continues
  2. It should be good. Keep the pics coming.

    Happy smoken.

  3. Turned out great. Temp got to 145 deg F. I moved it to the oven to finish it off. Wow O Wow what a great tasting Turkey :drool
