    1st smoked Turkey

My Daughter and her husband are hoisting Thanksgiving this year in their new home and asked me if I could bring a smoked bird to add to their oven baked Turkey to the table this year. So since I have never done one before I figured I need to do a test...

    Thanksgiving spread

    Here is a few pics of ribs and smoked turkeys I did this past holiday. The turkeys were injected with butter mixed with creole and smoked paprika and rubbed in the cavity with a home made brown sugar dry rub. The ribs got the same rub treatment with a spritz of apple juice and basted with sauce...

    Mmm... leftovers.

    Tried a few new tricks this go around... overall I was pleased. The legs were injected and smoked - delicious as always. The rest of the bird, I pre-carved, dry brined, injected, sous vide and then smoked. Lots of work, but delicious.

    Another Turkey Thread

    Hey everyone I know there's going to be and are a bunch of these but, well, I like to share. I had a 10# and a 12# bird which I brined for 15 hours each. My brine consisted of salt, sugar, thyme, rosemary, onion etc. I used the briner bucket which is awesome. One bird brined in the spices with...

    A bird to be thankful for...

    I love smoking on Thanksgiving... not because I love turkey more than other proteins, but because there is so much sport to the cook. The preparation, build-up, research and anticipation over this centerpiece of an event with family and friends is special. Love it! I'm thankful my family and...

    Smoking Pork Shoulder

    Franklin, First I enjoy your show. Your inspiration helped me decide to tackle a big chunk of pork. In Denver we have a few technical problems we had to overcome. Roasting a roast in a charcoal grill is fraught with things which could go wrong. Cooking at 5280 feet above sea level will...

    Deep fried or Smoked Turkey?

    I'm just curious which one everyone thinks is better? I have heard both are better so I don't really know. I personally have never had either one.
