Default First Turkey Successful...(Pr0n)

Yep, this was my first turkey. 15 lb. Turned out very good.

First made up the injection last night. 3 cups apple juice, 1 stick butter, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 Tbs Secret Weapon Pork and Chicken rub.

Simmered 10 min and strained. Covered and put in fridge until this morning.

Washed off the turkey, patted dry and injected at 0600. Also fired up the WSM at this time with some apple and cherry wood.

Iced down the breasts for an hour while the smoker came up to temp. (325*)

An apple, lemon, and orange halved and put in cavity.

Brushed with some of the injection before putting some rub on.

Then a nice coating of Oakridge BBQ SW Pork and Chicken.

On the WSM around 0700.

Took a long time to get to 350*. Ended up opening up the door for a couple minutes to feed it more air. Was quite windy for a while. But all in all the WSM/guru did a good job.

Off the smoker at 1130.

Tented and rested until 1215.

My rendition of a carved turkey.

Wife's plate.

My plate. Don't mind the fine China.

All in all a very successful cook. Thanks for looking.
