First brined / injected turkey

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Happy Saturday everyone!   Today I'm smoking a 14lb turkey in the mes30 with my new amnps....



I used the slaughterhouse brine recipe and soaked for about 40 hours. My work schedule resulted in the long brining time but we'll see what happens.




Pulled from the brine and rinsed, then injected with Tony C's Creole Butter marinade.




Into the mes30.




Have pitmaster's choice pellets started. I made sure it was well lit (couldn't blow the flame out) then into the smoker.

I had to quarter the turkey because I can only brine in my fridge (It's hot here in FL!). I hope the amnps stays lit and I will update

as needed! Have a great day!  :yahoo:

I have only brined and smoked a turkey once and I want to do another. I am curious to see how it turns out after being quartered. Looks great so far!

Thanks for the responses! So far the amnps is working perfectly! IT of the breast is 129f and the smoker is running around 235f....:icon_biggrin:

So a final plate pic.....



Here we are with veggie stuffing, mashed taters with giblet gravy. The breast meat was the best I've ever had so no more oven for this boy.

The leg quarters and wings were a touch under-done so into the 350f oven they went. I highly recommend the Slaughterhouse brine and

your choice of injection! -Rich    Thumbs Up

Looks delicious. I plan on attempting a smoked turkey in the near future. In the past I've deep fried and Dutch oven cooked my birds.
