Hey everyone!!    Today im doing some (6) Turkey Legs and (2) 5 lb Butts.  

Its a first for the Legs.  So Hoping they will turn out.  

With the Turkey Legs I brined them over night in Water/Salt/Brown Sugar/Garlic Powder/Onion Powder/Parsley.



Going to pat dry and throw some rub on them shortly.  Trying to even it out to where the Butt and Legs get done around the same time.   cooking at 245-250.  Using Hickory & Apple as wood. Going to Spritz with a mix of apple cider vin and apple juice. 

And the Butts are on right now as we speak. 

With the Butts i put secret rub on left in fridge over night and let it do its thing.  Took out this morning to throw on smoker.  Heres what they looked like.    



More Pics to come.   Will keep everyone updated.  I love this site.  This is only my second smoke so im still learning and any pointers or advice are greatly apprieciated!!  

Thanks

Shelby B.

About 2 hrs in for Turkey Legs.  Spitz and took a quick photo.  hehe.  And the Butts have been on for about 5 hrs.  So far so good.   Internal temp for butts was at 155.   About ready to take off and foil and put back on.   In about 10 more degrees.    So far so good??

Boston Butt and Turkey Legs finished   !!!!!   q-view



Had a nice smoke ring .   The bark or skin was a little too much i think.  they were a hit though. just my opinion.



the pulled pork.  was amazing.
