    Well we have done the usual on the grill. The key is the type of Bacon you use. We are in love with the Maple flavored from Wright.  Other regular smoked bacons would just give it the smoke taste that the smoker already is doing.  We have found this at Sams Club in our area but starting to see it at our local markets as well. You would smoke the turkey as usual like you would any other. The key is making fine slits in the breast of the turkey so the flavor and fat from the bacon go deep in for that awesome flavor. In the smoker we commonly use hickory but they do make applewood now i see to and we are giving that a try this year. Good luck and enjoy !

    awesome. i'm smoking my 2nd Turkey of alll time tonight. Decided to wrap the Turkey with bacon. (didn't know it was common, haha - still a newbie).

    Anyway, I decided to use apple smoked bacon. i will be using hickory for the smoke. and i found an applywood rub i'm going to use.
