Turkey smoke wood

Alder or Pecan for a turkey?

I need to know in the next 2 hours so I can start this baby.

Brined in basil rosemary zinfandel mix, rubbed with garlic basil rosemary.

Thanks!

Purely a matter of taste I would also consider apple wood

While Pecan is not overpowering for beef and pork, at times it seems just a bit too strong for poultry IMHO. I've never had Alder. Given the choice between the 2, I would go Alder, just because I've never had it.

Doing Chicken on the Rotiss today, and I will be using a small amount of Apple.

I would go with alder with a bit of pecan thrown in.

Me, too. I just finished smoking 4 turkey breasts in the MES for 6 hours with apple wood.
