started off soaking the turkey in brine overnight
rinsed and patted dry with paper towels
next i injected melted butter with garlic and onion powder under the skin..sorry no pic of that
applied a dry rub mix
next i applied a bacon
i got my smoker up to 300 degrees with the help of a welding blanket..its a nice cool day today..38 degrees
here is a pic 3 hours into the smoking process
here are a few mods i have done to my charbroil smoker
cut, bent and bolted together a charcoal basket
blocked off the original exhaust port
reinstalled the exhaust port on the other side of the lid and installed a chunk of exhaust pipe to grate level, i also blocked off the rotisserie holes on each side of the lid
with the help of a buddy that works as a h-vac tech..cut and bent a heat baffle plate.
sorry for the poor pic quality..used my cell phone..my rebel xti had dead batteries..
ill post more pics as i get them.
