Put down 4 turkeys last week in curing brine, smoking them today. Some Qview: Soaked them in a huge bucket: Pulled them out, 1 by 1 into a 5 gal pail and sacked them in the sink and hung in the smokehouse (figured I'd have room for 4 more.... next year!) Got the smoke started, using the plum wood my son cut down for me last spring and chunked up! No pellets this time, but there will be more! of course, it is billowy at first... But will settle down to thin blue quickly, about 5 minutes, then add a chunk every 30-40 minutes.... Now we're smoking! Keeping it at about 235° - 240°, will check back when they're getting golden!
