Then, stuff cavity with sage, tyme, and wedges of apple, lemmon, and orange. Then throw on Uds ( put a pie pan between my top grate and secured a small grate with bolts underneath so the pie pan is sandwiched between to catch drippings). then smoke over cherry or apple wood at 325 degrees untill 165 breast internal temp. Anyone see and problems with this senario ?

Thanks for all the help by the way guys.
I assume you have a brine recipe? Not sure if the orange slices would be powerful enough to offer much flavor. Many of the recipes that I see use a can of OJ concentrate.

I think the best way to deal with this is to smoke a few turkeys and practice.
