    Can't wait to see how it turns out. I absolutely LOVE smoked turkey, above anything else smoked turkey is my absolute favorite.
    I know, butts, ribs, fatties are all so delicious but my first true love is smoked turkey.
    Speaking of which, just heard a ding, my leg must be done.
    Good luck! Happy Smoking Easter!

    Ifin I'm doin several chickens I will net em. Got a nettin stuffin horn just fer the yardbirds.

    Here be an update on them ham an turkey nets. DON"T buy the read plastic type ones, they won't hold the weight! Get the cotton ones, they will hold upta bout anythin. Dropped this bird in the water pan twice, gave up an put him on a rack. Gonna get more a the good bags fer sure!



    The nettin horn.



    Givin birth ta a netted yardbird!



    Yardbirds all netted up.



    The finished product. Gives a real nice old country appearence. Just what we was a lookin fer.
