Smoked a couple 10 ½ lb. turkeys today. Used peach wood for flavor and RO lump.

Before, rubbed w/ olive oil, a little Sea salt, Tony C's, and fresh cracked pepper:



Done, skin was nice and crisp on these guys, very moist and juicy:



I made an awesome platter w/ wings, thighs, drumsticks, and sliced white breast meat. It turns out no one here was smart enough to get a pic of it though. I'm gonna have to dock the photographer's pay.

Gorgeous birds. I am also interested in the secret to getting the crispy skin. I have tried but never been able to achieve it.

No secret on these, the direct heat really kept them from getting rubbery it seems. Other than that I did nothing special because I was just seeing where my starting point would be with this smoker. BTW, cooked @ 225°-240° for 4 hours.

Those birds llok awesome. Hope to do a couple myself soon. I like the simplicity of your rub. I assume that it tasted well.

Would you use peach again?

The turkeys tasted very well Cheech. All four dinner participants had turkey sammies for lunch the day after.
As for the peach, loved it. I put 5 butts over it today. Been a long time since I experimented w/ wood for pulled pork.
