Turkey Time

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ever since i started smoking about 4 years ago thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday.  I was given the honor of taking care of the bird this year so i decided on doing the buttermilk brined with garlic butter smoked turkey.  This was actually one of Jeff's recipes and i slightly modified it. 


I first brined her in 1 gallon of butter milk

1 cup salt

1 gallon of water

some seasoning


12-14 hours later a rinse...


then i packed a pound or so of a smokey garlic butter under the skin.





Currently she is 4 hours in, expecting her to come off around 1 pm will post a current q-view when i check it next.

well she finished at 11:10 or so, in some foil and towel in a cooler waiting till dinner time.



regardless i am sure she will be tasty.
