    This Christmas I asked for and received a MES 30" SS/window. I decided to smoke our Christmas dinner and began looking for a good smoking recipe. I found Tips Slaughterhouse for turkey.


    I brined the turkey for two full days and the night before Christmas I took it out and injected it. I let the turkey rest overnight in the fridge and injected it again the next day. I smoked it 8 hours at 250 deg with hickory.

    I have never had a turkey so moist and taste so good!! Seriously, OMG! Thank you SMF for making this Christmas dinner the best I have ever had!

    Congrats on the new smoker and the fine result!  They are the best you'll ever have, hands down.  BTW, keep those carcasses for smoked turkey soup -- you won't regret it!!!  My wife does this every time, and all I can say is "WOW!!!"
