heres how i made that turkey

started out with some basic ingredients, hot hungarian paprika injection oil beer and some hot pepper sauce   12  lb turkey

PLEASE NOTE PICURE #7 WAS MY SONS IDEA OF A JOKE   HE SLIPPED THAT IN ON ME



I like to smoke for about three hours bare



i then wrapped with foil tight to trap in moisture for a few hours



I then place in a pan and coat with a thick layer of butter to help crisp the skin



then the last hour i coated a couple layers of the apricot glaze for a nice sweet glaze



and the finished product



THIS PIC WAS SLIPPED IN   PLEASE NOTE THE KEYWORD WAS REVISED BY THE YOUNGUNS



HE ALSO TOOK A CLOSE UP TO DISTRACT ME HERE



and here she is sliced up ready for eatin



this turkey was very tasty,  the skin was crispy and sweet with the apricot,   but after a couple seconds the hot injection in the meat hit you and really added a nice kick

we had three turkeys and mine was gone wth the other two pleanty leftovers!!

made me smile

thanks for the votes everyone

gotta go work on that ham now

Sounds like a great, straight-forward technique, and that color is BEAUTIFUL!!!  Never would have thought to spike up turkey with hot sauce and paprika.  Love using apricot jam and dried apricots in things - they have a nice tart/sweet thing goin' on.   The kid's right, that's one bitchin' bird!!!

Now thats why I voted for you there Rick. That is one of the best looking turkeys that I have seen this year. That also included the 4 turkeys that I smoked, fried, and smo-fried this year.
