Smoking a 14 pounder and frying an 18lb bird, keeps the oven free for other things..and they are way better than a roasted bird. I pitched the idea of making ribs instead but nobody liked that idea :)

Best way to thaw is to move it to the refrigerator today and let it slow thaw over the next couple days.

I just smoked a pulled ham today and pick up a 17 pound bird tomorrow from a local farm that's also destined for the UDS. Then we'll be watching the Cowgirls, err Cowboys as well. :)

I'm smoking a 13 lb turkey on Thursday. I mixed up the brine tonight and the bird is going into it tomorrow, the brine is in the fridge cooling off.

This is my third year smoking on an ECB. Last two runs were with a water pan, this time I'm going for the quicker run without water. They have between great last times. I can't wait to try the ECB running hotter.

Happy Thanksgiving! I've got a 13 pounder brining in a cooler on the back porch. Gonna smoke it with apple wood chunks. The wife has her 20 pounder that she's putting in the oven. We're feeding 16 people tomorrow.
