Actually this was a day after turkey day smoke, smoked Friday, ate on Saturday.  We had our Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday as it just worked better for everyone...

I think this is my first q-view post I believe.... But anyway smoked a 13lb bird and 6lbs deer summer sausage....  Many got many compliments on both! Turkey took forever with the cold temps and wind we had, was hard to even maintain 200* in the smoker. Didn't even manage to get the turkey brined before the smoke, which I had intended, but it wasn't fully thawed yet so I just spritzed it a lot during the smoke with apple juice.  Was plenty juicy!

I had to look twice for I thought I read turkey dinner. Then saw two links of sausages and thought you had turkey sausage for turkey day. But I went on down and saw the bird and I felt better for you. Great Job on the bird.

Absolutely hard to go back to an oven! I either fry or smoke them now...  But my wife for some reason still prefers baked turkey.... but everyone else prefers smoked or fried so she gets out numbered...

Nice looking meat ya got there! Glad it all worked out, nothing worse than braving the elements to smoke and it not work out. Sounds like yours did!
