1: Which smoker 055
2. Turkey Size 21# with 8% solution (price was right $.39/lb)
3. Preps 38 hrs in Holiday brine with TQ added
4. Smoker temp 225 2 chunks of hornbeam (akin to hickory)
5. Total Time 4 hrs in CS + 1.5 hrs in 350 oven
6. Comments
Was very moist. Even people who said they don't like white meat (too dry) said they really liked this white meat. Wasn't salty at all except for some pieces where I think some TQ came to rest because I added at the last minute. Those pieces were also a bit red as TQ will do. All in all a very successful bird.

Skin was cracked coming out of smoker and got worse in the oven. Still need to work on presentation. Pretty ugly.
