Default Turkey Practice Run

I am in charge of the turkey for Thanksgiving day so I wanted to do a test run. I brined a 16 pound bird for 24 hours, then dried the turkey and let sit in fridge for 6 hours. I then made a compund butter with fresh garlic, fresh sage, rosemary, and tyhme, and some salt and pepper. Rubbed it all under the skin and all over the bird. Smoked at 325 for 3 hours with hickory and cherry. Thanks to all the great info I got on this site it was the best turkey I have ever tasted. Super moist, tender and tasty.
