We have been smoking off and on for a few years with a Masterbuilt electric smoker. After reading suggestions here on this site we ordered a AMNPS to use in the Masterbuilt. We are not real happy with the amount of smoke the Masterbuilt produces. This year we decided to raise our turkey for Thanksgiving, yesterday was butchering day. I knew he was big, but when he was all dressed out the monster tom tipped the scales at 43 pounds. Our plans are to split him in half, brine him, then roast half and smoke the other half. Now I am dealing with half a bird that weighs around 20 pounds. I am planning on cutting up the half to smoke, thighs, legs, wings and deboning the breast then smoking them. Any suggestions on temps (we would like a slow cook and I don't have an issue with starting him in the middle of the night), how long, etc.?
I appreciate any advice.
