Ever since i started smoking about 4 years ago thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday. I was given the honor of taking care of the bird this year so i decided on doing the buttermilk brined with garlic butter smoked turkey. This was actually one of Jeff's recipes and i slightly modified it. I first brined her in 1 gallon of butter milk 1 cup salt 1 gallon of water some seasoning 12-14 hours later a rinse... then i packed a pound or so of a smokey garlic butter under the skin. BAD PICTURE HATS HER READY FOR THE SMOKER. Currently she is 4 hours in, expecting her to come off around 1 pm will post a current q-view when i check it next.
