I have smoked a wild turkey before and found that it is a great idea to brine them and also to wrap in bacon. There is so little fat on it that it would have been so dry if I had not done that

man that just reminded me of one...we were on the right of way and the power co. guy came up and said that there was a turkey on the road behind the truck we were standing in front of, when i looked around the truck the turkey went down in the weeds and became tangled in some thorny brush, well i had my carhardts on and some gloves and i dived in and grabbed it by the legs and well we had a good meal back at the motel room that night, always carry a grill when on the road, it was a 14# hen

Sounds like the schnoodle deserves a treat for this catch! Enjoy it, not many wild turkeys here on Long Island.
