Two turkeys for Thanksgiving

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

After trying different things, I did my turkeys two different ways.  1 I brined in CranApple juice and salt overnight.  The other I injected with Lawrys Herb and Garlic.  I rubbed olive oil on both and used a rub.  Smoked for 5 hours at 250* then put in oven for little more than 1 hour.  Was a little worried, but turned out GREAT!!  Only two things now, no leftovers and I am the designated turkey cooker for now on!! 

 

Enjoy the views....

WoW!!!  That final shot with the sliced turkey is fantastic, grunt!

 

Great Q view, and did I mention how good that turkey looks?  Dang!  You can tell it's moist and smoky!  Aw yeaaaah!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Great looking birds, like the cranapple brine idea, feel like sharing the mixture?

Great job on the birds. That red brine makes them look so cool. I am in the same boat as you are Designated Turkey Cooker from no on. haha

Thanks for looking!  I simply put one 12# bird in a roasting bag, one cup of Kosher salt and one gallon of CranApple juice.  I might have put more juice to cover the bird, but didn't have any!!  I then rubbed EVOO on it and used a simple "poultry" rub from the dollar store.. (last minute thing...) Did I mention there were NO leftovers!!  LOL!!
