Hi everyone I haven't posted in a while, I've been real busy at work. I want to smoke a turkey for Thanksgiving but I don't want to have that be my first time. I'd like to work out the kinks before the big day arrives. I'm going to get a 12 lb bird and give it a go this Sunday. So here's the the gist of this post. How did you all do it? Hot & fast or low & slow? To brine or not to brine? That is the question. Herb butter under the skin or a classic BBQ rub? Hickory or apple wood? I could go on all night. Help me!!!
