Yet Another Turkey Thread w/ qview

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
We have been brining and smoking our turkeys for the last 4 or 5 years as it really helps my wife out by freeing up the oven for her awesome side dishes not to mention it always turns out great. This year I decided to give Tip's brine and spritz a try. All I can say is that it was incredible. We got a 12lbs natural bird from Whole Foods and it cooked a lot faster than I expected. Here is the qview.

Just about time to take it off. I threw a couple of sausages on just because I could. biggrin.gif

After resting for about 30 minutes.

Cornbread sausage stuffing.

Traditional stuffing.

Candied yams.

Bean salad and cranberry sauce.

I want to do it all over again.

Solar, that is one of the best looking birds I've seen yet. Make sure you toss a picture of that into the throwdown.

It seems to be a common comment around here the last couple of days that many were saying their birds were coming up to temp much faster than expected.

It rose surprisingly fast. I had to dial down the temp for the last two hours to try and stretch it out to hit dinner time. I have never had a bird cook this fast before.

That bird looks great, lots of times you can hardly make out the smoke ring, especially after taking a picture but that one was a nice deep pink.
Great job!

There isn't much in the way of leftovers left, that is for sure. I am tempted to redo this for Christmas but I am already committed to making my first smoked prime rib.
