Looking for a lost recipe for herb smoking turkey. Last year smoked a whole bird using a foil pouch with herbs instead od wood. This was the best tasting turkey ever, but I lost the amount of and which herbs. Question being has anyone seen this method of smoking a Thanksgiving Turkey. Stuck and need help.
I know a lot mix the herbs with butter and rub under breast skin (including me), but I have not heard of doing that.
I've heard of it but never tried it. If I remember correctly Thyme and Basil were used. Placed in a foil pouch would work well just don't over do it. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Oh, and by the way Don, welcome back. Hope to see more of you.
