Hello all, hope everyone had a great weekend. Ben had a lot of fun, he got a turkey while out hunting! This brings me to my question. I've read alot on here about smoking a domestic, butterball type turkey, but has anyone ever smoked a wild turkey? The main thing I'm concerned about is the fact that with wild turkeys you don't keep the skin when dressing it (from what I hear it's pretty nasty stuff). Without the skin on poultry I'm not sure how I would keep it moist in the smoker. The two things that immediatly come to mind are of course brining it (which I plan to do) and wrapping it in bacon. If anyone has any other suggestions I would love to hear them.
