Me, the Boy and 3 turkey breasts w/QView

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
My boy and I got up early this morning to get the 3 birds in the smoker.

Using travcoman45's brine and spritz

3 - 7# turkey breasts in brine for ~24 hours
Used Jeff's rub heavy on 1, light on another and SP on the last one

Bud and the turkeys

Turkeys loadin' up the smoker

Bud, the smoker and TBS

More Qview to come. Thanks for lookin'. Bud did all the heavy lifting...he started the fire, put the birds in and hooked up the thermometers

He's the best helper out there! He definitely gets the whole que philosophy! Boys, their toys and early mornings...he's about to have a fit 'cause the Easter bunny came early, but his sister isn't up yet to do the Easter egg hunt! He thinks that since he and I are up, everyone should be up!

Teach that youngun while you can. In a few years he and his friends will show up just in time to eat your Que and be gone again. But that aint so bad either...

It's great when kids show interest in helping. I'm looking forward to seeing some great looking birds come out of the smoker.

They've been in nearly 2.5 hours and are already at ~130 each. I'll probably be done way early...time to clean out the cooler and get some old towels ready.

The Finished Product

Here it is - 3 turkey breasts a boatload of ABTs and 4 Nathan's Famous wieners (couldn't resist)

That was after the kids got into the ABTs...
