Turkey Brining

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am going to smoke a 13lb turkey for Thanksgiving and have seen that it needs to be brined before smoking.  My question is if the turkey is already flavor injected at the processing plant do I still need to brine?  My GUESS is that it would not be absolutely necessary but since this is the first one I've done on a smoker I need your advice on this.


Thanks for the help...

Beernuts, by all means you can Smoke the Bird as is...I,though , choose to brine , thus adding some extra flavors of my choice .


I've done a lot without brining ,but when I tasted the difference , I never went back.  Like I said, - it's a choice , I just prefer to float them...biggrin.gif
