    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.

    well she finished at 11:10 or so, in some foil and towel in a cooler waiting till dinner time.


    regardless i am sure she will be tasty.
