Hope I pass the test!(Q-view)

Thread Starter 
Well today was beautiful and as promised in my hello post this ain't my first rodeo!240degrees ,and about 6 and a half hours later the best turkey yet.Gotta thank my brother for the new brine but all in all we think the secret is the cup(yes one cup )of herb butter under the skin.Perfect crispy and shot juices every where even after the 30 min rest time.

First the weapon........

The secret good luck charm....

My biggest fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Couple of hours in.....

The finished Q............YUMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Served up with some cornbread dressing,gravy,and fried apples.Wish yall were here me and my dog are fighting over the last bits!

That's one darn good looking turkey, I've never done a turkey. I have one left in the freezer and after seeing yours I think you just gave me the final push to smoke it. At that temp. did the skin turn out crispy? I think I'll get it out of the freezer tomorrow, and as soon as it's thawed out I'm on my way. Thanks again for the push and once again NICE LOOKING TURKEY!!

Yeah it was real rispy! but put plenty o' butter under the skin for cookin' then when you think your almost done hit it with all the heat you can for a few minutes.May not be what actually works for me but it's what I do!

Well the brine my brother used had cranberry and apple so I figured citrus and the standby's rosemary and thyme.The flavors were subtle but there.It's a keeper!
