    I have been asked to smoke 8-10 turkey's for a event.  I smoke a lot of other meats but never whole turkey's.  I would not like to get involved with the having to having to brine them. 

    Questions? does anyone have a good pointer on just plan old smoking them?

    They will be 10-12lbs max.  I have a large smoker either reverse or straight can be used.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
