I love this site and have recently purchased a WSM 22.5. I followed the great advice from this forum on how to smoke a turkey (brined for 24 hrs). I have a slight problem. The turkey didn't come out like some of the pics viewed from this site. The rub on the turkey is black not that great tanned look. The rub I used is the Naked rub from Jeff's recipe. After 7.5 hours of smoking at 230, the temp on the turkey is 175. The smoke flavor and the turkey is great, but how do you get that nice looking turkey. Is it the rub, should I just rub it with some Olive Oil only? Any advice would be appreciated as I will smoke that perfect turkey (nicely tanned outside).
PS. I noticed I posted this in the wrong Forum.
