OK I am getting ready now. Just went to the grocery store and got kosher salt and apple juice among other things. I am going to try smoking an 8 pound Turkey Breast (Honeysuckle White) I think it has some rib meat and other stuff. It is thawing as we speak. I am using a weber kettle type of smoker that I have used as a regular grill for several years now. From what I have read I am going to use indirect heat...charcoal on one side and the bird tit on the other. I bought some square foil cake pans to use as drip pans etc. I have also been reading about using sand instead of water...which seems like a good idea since this will be a longer smoke and I surely don't want to risk sickness from not cooking hot enough. I plan to brine the bird tit for about 12 hours and start cooking it early early Thanksgiving morning. It's just me and the kiddo so I don't have to have it done by any certain time...but it would be nice to have it near lunch time and be able to snack on it through the day. I figure at around 8 pounds I will end up cooking it about 5-6 hours. (all based on what i read) I bought plenty of butter and have tons of good spices for rubbing and might even inject something or other because i have an injector/baster. I am open for any all suggestions...like I said this is my first attempt and everything I know is just stuff I have read and can remember. Also it is going to be cold here Turkey-Day...like highs in the mid to upper 30's and possible snow flurries (I love snow so it probably won't happen!) Is this something that I should take into account with the cooking because of the ambient temperature around the grill? I also bought the makings for ABTS and am considering making some of them as a trial run for starting a fire...keeping it hot etc. I will take suggestions on them as well...in fact if there is a good link on how to's for ABTS I wouldn't mind reading it. This forum is HUGE! I just figured out how to start a new thread! I plan to post pictures to this thread as I get this turkey tit going...nothing too exciting for you experts I am sure but photography is a hobby for me so I plan to play with it and have a good time! Hope you either have suggestions for me or at least enjoy the thread with pictures and my usual antics. Peace and Chicken (Turkey Tit) Grease!
