I have smoke #2 almost ready to pull from the smoker. I started a turkey this morning and have been drooling all day laong. I just took a few temp readings in different parts of the bird and am right at 175*. I am trying a strange recipe where you add a stick of butter, an apple, onion and some garlic into the cavity along with a can of Coke! Yea, I know.... I didn't think it sounded right either, but it looks great... smells great... and I will have to post the results. I didn't use a brine soak on this smoke. I had no idea what that was before it was too late. I will try to shoot a pic or two and let everyone know how it comes out. I used apple..... and a 1/4 mix of hickory. The only problem I had was that it wanted it in a shallow roasting pan, with a loose foil blanket. Not a cover, I used a piece just to deflect some of the heat around. I don't know, after all this is my second smoke. I want to try a brisket and a couple of fattys, but I need to find some more help. More fourm surfing fun. Thanks for everything guys... I will keep you posted on my smoke.
