Smoked Turkey on the Akorn
 

This might very well be the best turkey I have ever cooked. I'm a big fan of deep fried turkeys but after this cook, I might not look back...

I was always a fan of deep fry.....Found out of you smoke a turkey right they are as good or better.

Very Nice

Did rubbing the butter on after the injections vs before the injections push some of the injected butter out ?

Just thinking I might try and putting the butter on outside first if it would help keep more of the juices in the bird.

Every man needs a cave :hungry:

You're making me pull a turkey out of the freezer. That looks killer!

I don't think so. The melted butter was warm and the bird was cold. Most of that injected butter probably solidified within 30 seconds of injection.

Nice looking Turkey.

John, thank you for this! Super informative and wonderful to encourage people. We call these our nibblin turkey - not to replace the traditional oven deal - but as an add-on.

Either way - my boys 10 and 12 make me promise every T day that I will cook turkey once a month - and of course, I never do. But we need to, don't we!

Hail to the Turkey - Hail to Smoked Turkey and Hail to John for the great video!

Great video John.

I really like the melted butter injection idea. I'm totally stealing that for my Thanksgiving turkeys this year.

I've used that store-bought stuff that seems to resemble popcorn butter, but I think this will turn out a lot better flavor and keep the meat very moist.

Thanks for the tip.
