Couple of Q-Shots from Thanksgiving

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Stuffed and Smoked with sliced onions and sliced oranges. Made for a very nice flavor combined with the apple and hickory (3 to 1) wood smoke.

I'm still trying to figure out how to include pictures, so if they don't come through, I'll keep trying.

That's a beautiful bird Buck. I have only tried to roast/bake one, twice. Then five years ago I go my frier and have only done it that way since. Have been contemplating trying roasting again, mainly to be able to stuff it with lots of nice goodies. Good job.

Thanks guys... It was wonderful.

It had already had liquid injected, so I didn't try to brine it.

I wish I'd have gotten a close-up shot of a slice... It had a 1/2 inch smoke ring...

I DID use a water pan, just to keep the moisture up.

Using a "Camp Chef" Smoke Vault.

I notice you mentioned that you stuffed it with onions and oranges, does that mean no beer can? And if not, was he upright on one of those racks, or laying flat in the smoker? I want to try my first turkey this weekend.

Good job on the turkey man. I have done some patriot guard escorts also. Very emotional. Thanks man.

It was flat on the rack... dripping the juices into the water pan which smelled really good. I thought about just taking the pan into the bedroom that night, but the wife didn't seem to have the same enthusiasm...

I'm having trouble finding turkeys that haven't already been injected with water or whatever. From what I've heard, brining wouldn't be a good idea with a bird that has already been injected, and I really want to try brining... I'll keep searching, though.
