My favorite food growing up, without a doubt, was turkey. Now, my favorite hobby is smoking meat. Combine the two???????
I don't know if I'm going to be able handle this overload of awesomeness!!!!!!!
Here is the 12.25 pound bird taking a 9 hour bath in Tips Brine. My 4 year old daughter has named her Casa (she names all of her stuffed animals Casa). I sure hope she doesn't get too attached to Casa, I don't think she will like what we plan to do to her later.
Plan on pulling her out tonight and letting her rest in the fridge overnight, then smoking her tomorrow for the first of 3 Thanksgivings this year.
