1st Smoked Turkey = Success
« on: November 27, 2011, 04:22:49 PM »
I was worried about taking on the responsibility of preparing the Thanksgiving turkey without doing a dry run 1st, however, everything worked out perfect!  It was incredibly juicy and was bursting with flavor.  The family was very impressed.

I brined the 15lb bird for a day and a half,  applied my rub, popped it in the smoker (hickory) with red wine in the bisquette bowl until 155° then finished it off at 165° in the oven to crisp up the skin a bit.

Here's a couple of pics. I wish I had a better camera handy, but my phone is the only thing I had close by.
@155°


Finished!
