Canadian Thanksgiving Turkey Smoke

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by grogger27, Oct 10, 2008.

  1. Good day, eh!!
    It starting to freeze over night now, the leaves are falling and they're forecasting snow over night. Guess who's wife volunteered him to smoke turkeys for half the country side. I should actually say volun-told, not volunteered.
    Anyway, I need some help. I lost most of my notes I've been keeping on smoking so I can't remember the particulars. My turkeys for tomorrow are both around 19 lbs. They've been marenating for a couple days in the salt/onion/garlic/bay leaf and OJ brine.
    Here comes the particulars I'm missing. What is the temperature to smoke the birds? What is the temp/weight/time ratio?
    I also have maple wood, alder, hickory and mesquite, what would work best?
    Thanks for the help.
