Smoking a Turkey.

  1. Last Thanksgiving I brined and smoked a 21 pounder for my parents and they said it was the best they ever had. So tomorrow I will smoke one with Apple wood after brining 16 hours.

    Brine recipe:

    Cold water

    Kosher salt

    minced garlic

    quartered onion

    basil

    chicken seasoning 

    chives

    I will Q-View with the rest

    Use the EZ Rider double wide heavy duty papers! Or it will drip thru!  Sorry don't know where that came from!

    I love apple with turkey I have done hickory apple a lot, but a while back I did turkey drums with all apple and it was the best! It has a light amber color and the smoke is so delicate, its an awesome choice with fowl.

    Look at 13 of 18 is that a beautiful color?
