Default Apple Brined Smoked Turkey

Just pulled this off the Party! I cannot get over how good it looks, and how quick it cooked. 12.4 pounds took 2 hours at 325!

Color looks great... and yes... 2hours at 325 sounds a bit quick, but as the saying goes.. "Its' done when it's done"

Man o Man, look at the color on that bird. Wonderful. Were you using cherry?
Looks great, bet it tastes great too.

That turkey looks good enough to eat! My brined turkeys always cook much faster than non-brined turkeys.

A chunk of cherry and a chunk of apple. I could not decide so I went with both.

Good choice! I like the flavor of apple and the color of cherry.

Great looking Turkey, Larry!

Yes. I followed this recipe. http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/turkey6.html

It tasted very good. I have to say that the Turkey I buy at Greenberb for the holidays set the gold standard for me. http://www.gobblegobble.com/

I wish I knew their secrets.
