Doing another test smoke for my Thanksgiving turkey and I decided to throw some extra stuff on there so I didn't feel like I was wasting all that space. Well as it turns out I was able to fit the turkey, a brisket flat and a boston butt all on the top rack of the WSM 22.5. Still room for much more but I about went broke buying all this stuff...lol. I told the guys at work that I'd bring in some stuff this weekend so they can test out my Q on the new smoker.
Here's the breakdown....
13.5 lb bird all cleaned up
Cooked up the brine and let it cool, added some oranges this time....
Ready to take a long ice bath
All brined up, rubbed and ready for the smoker.
Here my brisket flat ready to go....sorry for the crappy pic, I only took 1.
Boston butt all rubbed up ready to go on.
Here's everything on the top rack. A tight fit for sure but there was room.
The guys at work should be happy with this. I've also got a new vacuum sealer that I want to test out. For thanksgiving I plan on filling the whole thing up with turkeys.....that is if I've got it down by then. But if this one turns out good I'll take that chance after only 2 test runs. I don't want to ruin my taste for turkey by eating it to much before then!
