I have a 12 Lb turkey in the freezer I plan on smoking for Christmas, about 3 or 4 days before to be exact. My neighbour is onboard and I am doing his at the same time. I intend to brine mine, and I will pressure him to do the same to his bird. I have the recipe for the brine and such. Now the question should I spatchcock the turkeys and then put them in my 30 inch Electric MES or leave them as regular, uncut bird? Just wondering which way is best.
