Got er done :-).......first turkey ever on the uds.....snagged a 14 lb fresh turkey from Meijer ......only one they had......said something about retained water but no mention of being injected with any solutions. Took it to 155f breast and thigh naked....then put in a foil pan with the 1 lb of butter. Pulled it at 175 breast and thigh (measured with IGrill). Bird was juicy and delicious.......to be safe I added no wood.....only RO lump. Would not hesitate to run IT a bit higher next time. I iced the breast for 1/2 hour before putting it on the Uds but it did not seem to have any effect. Total time in the uds both naked and in pan was 4 hours at 325f. First bird I ever brined....but it will not be the LAST :-)
