OK folks, it is the beginning of go time for me. Turkey smoking get ready time is here.
So this past Wednesday, I got my Turkey out and started defrosting it. Then Friday, I put mine in the brine. My neighbour was supposed to do the same, but it seems, his G/F bought, he took it out Thursday morn, he stop by work Friday at noon, she say door unlocked, and he tried, to no avail. So waiting for her to arrive at his house, I make up the brine for his and set it on his porch. By the time she does arrive, He is in bed, not willing to get up and do what is needed to get the bird in the brine, so I do it for him, at 10 at night. As I was talking with him, his G/F sitting on the bed showing him pictures, we learned that when he was trying the garage door, which was supposed to be open, her son was inside the house.
My bird, It is at this time, already out of the brine, sitting in the fridge with a some salt on the skin. His is still in the brine, he is gone somewhere and I am at total loss as what to do in about 1 1/2 hours here with his bird. I have no pan, aluminum foil or anything for that bird and no fridge space.
But any way, I am going to apply a rub, he says he is going to do the same, then Monday I plan on Smoking both birds at once in my MES
