I've smoked a few turkeys over the last few years with very good success, but I remember my sister buying a smoked turkey from a butcher a few years back that look just like a ham. When I smoke a turkey, it looks like a turkey, but this one was pink all of the way through and if she wouldn't have told me it was a turkey, I would have sworn it was a ham. What did the butcher do differently than I (we) do?

I'm wondering if is some sort of curing that is done to it? Just guessing.

Sounds like he added some sort of sodium nitrate to it either in the form of TQ or cure #1.
