oh sorry bout the stats, I was so excited I was able to post a picture I forgot, that was a big step for a technology challenged person like myself. I just heard about these things called Ipods, they are amazing you can listen to music without an 8 track, cassette tape or even a cd!! They are the darndest things.
So anyways I mixed some poultry rub with a little olive oil and rubbed that down between the skin and breast meat. Then used my beer butt cooker with a can of bud light lime. I had to tie up the legs a bit to keep it sitting straight on the beer can cooker. Smoked it at about 300 with cherry and it took about 3 hours. Let it rest for 30-45 minutes the cut it up. It was great but I would like a little more smoke flavor, maybe use hickory next time. I did not brine but the next I'll give that a shot. Even without the brine it was the juiciest most tender turkey I've ever had! My wife said she is never roasting a turkey again!
I think doing the beer can is the only way I can do a whole turkey since I've got the small GOSM, but I had no problem getting it in there and it was 16lbs.
