A late Thanksgiving - Jeff's Maple Turkey

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

We had our traditional Thanksgiving at my parents in Indiana on Thursday.  We returned home for the weekend and it was time for a smoking Thanksgiving!  I couldn't pass up trying Jeff's maple turkey from his newsletter:

 

 

Money shot getting ready for an overnight brine:

 

 

 

Maple syrup added, applying Jeff's rub:

 

 

 

This is a 20# turkey so I was worried and monitoring the danger zone.  We hit 140 right at 4 hours smoking around 185 with a mix of cherry and apple.  The below is 3 hours in and ready to mop:

 

 

 

 

Pulled at 165 after just around 7 hours on the WSM and rested double wrapped in foil for an hour:

 

 

Final products:

 

 

With stuffing, taters and gravy, corn casserole:

 

 

Double layer pumpkin cheesecake:

 

 

And a traditional pecan pie:

 

 

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed your holiday.

Nice looking Bird , but that Pecan Pie caught my eye...:drool:

 

 

My Favorite Pie , just above Coconut Cream...

 

I add a shot of Grand Mariner to the mix and it makes the flavors explode :drool.

 

Thanks for the look at you Thanksgiving . . .
