Default Greenberg Smoked Turkey

Have any of you had a smoked turkey from Greenberg ( My MIL got one from her boss for Xmas and brought it to Christmas Eve dinner as a cold appetizer. The flavor was really good. My FIL has been snacking off of it since and finished it today ( not sure if I would still be eating leftovers two weeks later, but I digress). He wants me to smoke him one like that.

I have smoked turkey before but never served it cold like this was. I am not sure if it is cured but I have seen a few articles on Greenberg saying it is nitrate free. Do I just brine and season the snot out of the bird and see what happens? Anyone have any experience or ideas to try to come close? Thanks in advance.

Well, on reading their web site, it appears that they smoke it just like you or I would. It is fully cooked and will last in your fridge for about a week. Just like a turkey that I would cook/smoke. No magic here....

I usually brine my turkey for a day or so, give it it a good seasoning a let it rip in the smoker at about 250 till done. Every 45 minutes I spritz with EVOO to give it a beautiful skin.

I recently did two turkey's spatchcocked using PatioDaddio's brine recipe. It was a huge hit for new years eve. Think Old Bay + Five Spice + Brine and fruit.

Nicely complex. That would give you a place to start.

Just my .02.

Thanks guys. Didn't seem any different than what I have done before. My FIL is a critic so we will see what happens. Thanks for the quick responses.
