    Turkey is in the smoker. Brined it in Tip's brine and did a light rub of butter, pepper, garlic, and paprika. I want to spritz it however all of the spritz I have seen are sweeter (apple juice, cider vinegar, etc.) and my wife doesn't like sweet turkeys (will be a little sweet with brine).

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a savory spritz?

    One thing that you can tell your wife is that she will never taste the spirtz on the bird for it will absorb into the bird so it will also burn away it is just to moisten the bird for afew more minutes and will burn away. I used that same stritz on everything I smoke and it works well for me. Look at tips brining recipe and I think there is a spirtzing recipe with it too. I looked and there is it's
    apple cidar vinagar 4oz
    apple juice 8oz
    whiskey 2oz
    water 6oz

    Tip has a spritz that goes well with his brine

    Dr Pepper and Rum will add a bit of sweet and keep it dark.
