I'm doing my turkey tonight because the in-laws are doing T-giving tomorrow. This is what I've done so far with my first bird: It's a 14 lb bird. Brine for 24 hours in a mix of apple juice and water with salt, brown sugar, garlic powder, red crushed pepper, cayenne, tabasco, onion, and apple. Pulled and rinsed and dried. Rubbed with salt, pepper, sage, and smoked paprika. Stuffed the cavity with onion, orange, and apple. Smoking with a mix of pecan and mesquite (2/3 to 1/3 respectively). This is a pic after 1 hour: Hopefully it comes out well enough to repeat next year!
