Hey guys I am looking to do 2 turkeys in the smoker. I have a 23 and a 21 pounder. I need a good brine recipe and some guidance on smokeing time and temps. I was looking to do an apple Turkey with apple juice instead of water in both brine and water pan along with apple wood chips. Thanks in advance

those turkeys sound to be a little on the large side to me to be safe for smoking.  Being that big they saty in the danger zone too long and do not pass the 140* mark soon enough.  I usually do not smoke a turkey over 14lbs.

I didn't realize that would it hurt to bump the heat up and do more of a quick smoke/cook vs keeping the temp low
