first time smoking turkey... I hope it comes out great...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Ok... so I start out by making my own brine.  Hopefully not too over powering.  1 gal of fresh apple cider, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1/2 cup salt, some pultry seasoning and Emeril's Essence.  It's in the bucket soaking in the flavor overnight.  I figure about 730 I will be putting it in the smoker.  I am thinking about 275 degrees???  Any thoughts on making the outside nice and crispy and meat nice and moist?  Has anyone tried soaking in apple cider??  I would appreciate any feedback.  I will keep you all posted.

I have a similar Brine I use on Pork Loin...That should work fine on Turkey....Temps 300*+ do the best job on skin in the Smoker...But yo can always pull the bird 10*F early and stick it in a 425*F oven to Crisp up...JJ
