    I brined my bird over night. Got up this morning and got a fire going in the big smoker.

    Drained her out then rubber her up and into the smoker. Smoker is running around 300

    Here it is after 1 hour.


    and after 2hrs. Shes getting a bath in Apple Juice this time.


    That is all for now.

    Ill update this in about a hour or so. At this point ill drop the smoker temp down to between 225-250.

    Stay tuned.

    Well all I can say is WOW. I cooked this on the RF smoker that I made and man that thing cooks like an convection oven. 16lb bird done in less than 3 hours. I checked at the 3hr mark and the breast were at 166 and thighs at 180. Thankful for the brine because its still nice and juicy.

    Below at 2 pictures. The first is when I checked it at 3rd. The second is resting on the counter.



    There it is.

    Thanks for looking everyone and have a great Thanksgiving.
