    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. [​IMG]

    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. [​IMG] 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. [​IMG]
