Practice makes perfect! So it’s become my annual tradition to do a practice bird on Sunday before hosting 30+ people and 3 birds on Thanksgiving.
Wife uses the carcass to make an AMAZING smoked gravy to go with Thanksgiving.

This is a 11.6 lb Turkey. I try to stay between 10-12 for my smoked birds.
Smoking on DynaGlo vertical Offset.
Dry Brined for 12 hours with Garlic/Salt
Rubbed with homemade run, 12 Hours.

Cook to 140, pull legs, wrap breast, cook to 160, pull and rest to 170.

Will post updates and final

So how did it turn out?
Al
My best one yet. Turkeys on Thanksgiving we’re great too, but they cooked super fast, which was weird. Usually I’m at 40 min per lb. they went around 30 minutes. Still can’t go wrong with a smoked turkey.
