Hello all,

    I tried my hand at a brined and smoked turkey. I started last night with a simple brine. In the smoker about noon and done about

5:00 ish. I was making smokies and the bird hit 172 degrees before I noticed. I still let it rest foiled and toweled for about an hour. I used hickory with just a little apple mixed in. It has a nice little smoke ring but it doesn't show up too well in the pictures. The bird was still pretty moist, smelled great and tasted good as well. The extra's I'm going to serve Thursday with my regular roasted 18# bird. 

The smokies (this years deer) need smoked tommorrow and will be snack for Thursday. Now lets try the load up pictures.

Scarbelly,

   They are in the smoker right now. I tried a major change in the recipe this time as a trial. A reduction of alot of salt after something Bear helped me out on.

As soon as I know which variety tastes better I'll post the recipe. I tried all beef ones as well but those will need smoked tommorrow as I can't put them all in at one time.

Who would have thought a MES 30 wouldn't seem small so soon.  I'll get back to you tommorrow with results.
