My Turkey Day smoke, q-view

    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... [​IMG]

    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!
