First Whole Turkey Smoke Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys!!!

 

I have decided to smoke a whole bird this year and I have some questions! 

 

1 - my bird is 13#s. Is that to big?

 

2 - I would like to brine this guy. When do I need to start before smoking?

 

3 - do you guys add anything in the cavity or leave it open?

 

4 - who loves this holiday? 

 

Gobble Gobble!

1. Nope perfect size
2. I brine for two days. Air dry for one day in fridge, smoke the next day
3. I leave mine open or I put in fresh parsley thyme sage onion and garlic
4. Love it so much we smoked a turkey last night!

Turkey came out great. Used Slaughterhouse Recipes for the bird and it was soo good. the meat fell off the bones!
