Smoked but don't forget to brine! :) Fried one for years but tired of having to get rid of the oil all the time.

Charcoal is cheaper than peanut oil and smoke tastes better imho, also don't forget about the gravy...oh the gravy!

I prefer almost everything to come off of the smoker/grill, but when it comes to a whole turkey, fried is far and away my favorite.

I smoked one a couple of weeks ago and thought it was great, too. If I were doing a second turkey, it'd be smoked, but gotta have a fried one first.

How about smoking a turkey breast (never enough white meat it seems) and frying a bird?

I plan to brine, spatchcock and doing a 2 hour smoke then frying it.
think that will give it enough smoke flavor even after frying?
