I recently smoked some turkey legs with an eggnog brine because apparently, no one drinks buttermilk in my town, so our local Safeway stopped carrying it! I used the Nogg with 1 cup salt, one cup brown sugar, 1 quart Nogg, 1/2 gallon water (filled my bag) for 24hrs. Smoked at 250 for about 1/12 hours (internal 165). Came out so juicy!
I am not using spiked Nogg ;). I do however use Spiced Nogg.
I am going to try a WHOLE turkey (20lbs) this time, and may need to use a half gallon Nogg and more water. Plan to smoke for 2-3 hours at 225 degrees and finish in Oven at 350.
Any advice would be appreciated!
