Anyone smoke turkeys a day in advance?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Im smoking some ABT's and fatties for our family christmas eve party.  I was thinking of smoking my turkeys at the same time for the christmas dinner the next day.  I was wondering if anyone does this, im afraid of them being dry after reheating.

Use a good brine, undercook a tad.

 

Reheat in the oven with a pan a water in the bottom.  Now, bout the only problem I have had doin it be the skin may split.  But otherwise their fine.  Take yer internal ta 160° an pull em, they will coast another 5°.

I have done it early 3 times now and it turned out good each time, not 1 of them was dry. Follow the hillbilly's advice you will be fine.
