Ok so I had to go to the In-laws for Thanksgiving Day dinner. God bless my mother-in-law, I love her alot, but she DESTROYED a turkey! To begin with, she doesn't smoke at all
, so the bird was oven roasted, and so overcooked it had no flavor at all and was terribly dry as well.
All I could think about was gettin' home and smokin' the bird I have set aside for dinner at my family's house, which is tomorrow.
That bein' said, here is my entry, a day late and a dollar short.
About 12 lbs. She spent all night in Tip's Slaughterhouse brine. Then dusted with some cajun seasoning and poultry seasoning. I put a quartered onion and a quartered apple in the cavity.
Into the GOSM at 300*
She's been in there about 2 hours. Won't be much longer.
Done! She looks so good it's gonna be hard to wait til tomorrow.
I'll be foiling her now, and into the fridge for tonight. Should be a hit at the folks' house tomorrow, dinner at noon sharp!
