Happy Turkey Day!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Got a good deal on some turkeys last week so I decided what better to celebrate the biannual loss of the US Ryder Cup team than a turkey and a rack of baby backs.

Made a salt and sugar brine for the turkey and let it sit in there for almost a full 24. I've never used a brine before so I'm looking forward to seeing the difference.

Once I took it out I added what my relatives call my secret rub (they don't know it's just salt and pepper) and threw it on the smoker.

Here's a few pics of the process starting from this morning:


This was just a few minutes ago before I wrapped the ribs:

Loons great!

Funny - I'm smoking ribs right now but I've been sitting here thinking that I need to do a practice run on a turkey leading up to thanksgiving. I've done plenty of chickens but never a turkey. Gonna do a first this year
