Mmmmmmm....Very nice JDT.
I love smoked turkey. Did you brine?
Sure does look good, I'm sure it tasted as good as it looks.

The turkeys look like they turned out well. How did they taste? Was your wife happy with them?

they were pre basted so I didn't brine, everyone thought they were great, the apple is so light however it left me wanting a little more smoke flavor, it was there just light. I could tell they weren't burnt just by looking but was happy to see juices come out when there were carved, when I told the wife to grab the camera she thought I meant the video camera for the kids easter egg hunt not the digi for food pics, thats why I don't have photos of the plated results

Nice looking birds. I agree that apple by itself is a little weak. I tend to throw some hickory on with the fruitwoods.

Hope you and your family had a nice Easter.
