My Thanksgiving turkey last year

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, I smoked my first turkey last year at Thanksgiving.   It came out really good.  The flavor was great.   I just used lump charcoal.  I should have thrown in a couple chunks of hickory.  I put butter under the skin, but that's about it.  Since then, I have smoked another one.  I brined it in buttermilk over night in the fridge.  I thought it made a difference as it was more tender.  I didn't take a photo of the second turkey.

Looks great 

Our Thanksgiving is done 

But I am thinking there is time for a turkey smoke before Christmas

Fanci, I'm planning to smoke my first turkey for Thanksgiving. I have fried them for years, but Jeff's newsletter had some great ideas including the buttermilk brine that you mentioned.

Well, I did the scalloped potatoes and the cornbread dressing.  I love to cook and make home made cornbread.  Sorry I don't have the recipes written down.  I think I used the recipes from ' all'
