Storing smoked turkey for Thanksgiving ?

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by mstrmike, Nov 16, 2011.

  1. I'm going to s, oke three turkeys for family gathering, but I need to do the smoking on sunday. I'm thinking carve the birds and package meat only until Thursday, or tightly wrap in saran wrap and foil and reheat Thursday. Any suggestions or help ??

    Wrap well or Ziplock and refrigerate until TG dinner.  Warm the turkey parts in a baking pan/dish tented with foil and with a little chicken broth in the bottom of the pan to keep everything from drying out.  Prolly a warm-up oven temp of 250-300* for 30-45 min. will do the trick if you don't pile the parts too high.

    Don't forget to catch those smokey drippings for some off-the-hook gravy!!!
