Smoking a turkey for the first time on thanksgiving. Any and all recipe ideas and tips
That sounds like a bird with rubber skin.spotchcock, wet brine if fresh dry rub with favorite rub on and under skin, on your smoker at 225F with pecan/cherry until 150 at the breast baste with butter last hour. rest for 20 minutes.
I advise against a first time on TG. Too much opportunity for error. Enjoy the holiday. Also, I much prefer oven roasted over smoked for TG. I you have to do it, maybe halve the bird, one in the oven and one in smoker or do 2 birds. All this being said, my personal favorite is Pop's low salt brine, netted, and long low smoke. Way too rich for dinner tho. Perfect appetizer for ball game or poker.Smoking a turkey for the first time on thanksgiving. Any and all recipe ideas and tips

YES! I drank the "dont use enhanced, solution added" kool aid once. Had to buy from whole paycheck and was not worth it what so ever! I buy whats on sale, what kroger has etc. brine it, and its always great.Brine, brine, brine the Turkey. No matter if it says "enhanced" or "solution added".
