This is my 1st smoked turkey. I did some research and asked questions on this forum over the last several days. I started with a 9.5lb turkey and brined it in 1 gallon of water mixed with 1 cup salt - 1 cup white sugar - 1 cup brown sugar - 1 tblsp cure(pink salt).
It was in the brine for 2 days then I took it out dried it and seasoned the outside with cajun seasoning. It went in the smoker @ 225 deg with a mix of apple and hickory chips and I am now waiting for it to get done. I am guessing 5 hrs should do it ? The photos are before going in the smoker and after 2.5 hrs in the smoker. I will post pics of the final product when it is done.
