    well figured id give it a try before the family comes over and we end up eating spaghetti on thanksgiving cause i messed up.lol so i picked up a 12lb turkey brined it.
    2gal water
    1 1/2cp kosher salt
    1/2 cup lawrys season salt
    3 cp sugar
    4 tbs black pepper
    1/4cp maple syrup
    1/4 cp worshester sauce

    smoking at 275-300 with hickory cherry mix at least this will give me something to go by here is a pic right in the smoker and then one with temp gauge coming up.lol
