    I have had a 22lb turkey in my freezer since Thanksgiving given to my daughter by her work. I brined the turkey for 10hrs using Slaughterhouse Poultry Brine. I mixed a rub in butter and put under the skin and smeared all over the bird. I used lump charcoal and added hickory and cherry wood chips and brought it to a 325. The bird I had it on a beer can turkey stand adding garlic, onion and brine to the beer. It took just under 5 hrs to reach 170 internal temp. Here are a few pix I took with my cell phone.

     The turkey came out great with just amount of brine and smoke and was very moist.
