Smoking a turkey

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm going to be smoking a turkey soon and I have seasoned red oak and cherry what would be the best to use or a combination of both? I have used oak to smoke ribs before but don't know how it would be with turkey.

Almost forgot I have some silver maple as well but I have never used maple before.

All if those would be good. I like to use a mixture of Pecan and Cherry. Your oak and cherry would be good. Or mix all three. The cherry will add a great robust red color to your bird.
